The Taeland national football team was the football team which represented the Hammish autonomous territory of Taeland. It was a member of the EMUFA.

History

Taeland applied successfully to join the FMF after the territory was founded by Hamland in 2007. However, the national team's FMF membership was granted too late for them to be involved in the inaugural EMU Championships.

The team competed in their first World Cup qualifiers the following year, where they finished third in a group of six topped by Hamland.

In the following year's qualifiers, the team was again drawn in a group against Hamland, where they finished fourth out of five teams.

The team performed disappointingly in 2010, finishing bottom of their World Cup qualifying group with no wins to their name. Despite the Tae team not qualifying, Haembeer Garden in Tly, Taeland, was used for matches in the 2010 finals, which Hamland hosted.

However, Taeland's fortunes improved the following year, with the team winning a closely-fought group in the qualification rounds to seal a place in both that year's World Cup and EMU Championships. In the former, the team could only draw one match as they finished bottom of their group, but managed a respectable fourth in their six-team EMU group.

In 2012's qualifiers, the team were less successful than the previous year, finishing fourth in their tough five-team group with eleven points.

Taeland's fortunes improved in the 2013 qualifying rounds, where they finished second in their four-team group with eleven points to reach EMU 2013. Following qualifying, the team competed in the first Nations' Cup, where they finished fourth after losing their three matches. In EMU 2013, the team finished bottom of their three-team group after losing both of their matches.

In the 2014 qualifiers, the team finished top of their group with 18 points and reached the 2014 FMF World Cup. The team also qualified for EMU 2014, where they finished second in their group with three points. In the World Cup, the team finished third in their group with three points, behind Birgeshir by virtue of a 2–1 loss after finishing with identical records.

The 2015 qualifiers saw the team's fortunes lessened as they finished fourth in their six-team group with 13 points to their name.

The qualifying rounds for EMU 2016 saw the team finish second in their four-team group with ten points to advance to the play-offs where they lost 4–2 on aggregate to Northern Beneluccas.

The team finished third in their four-team 2017 World Cup qualifying group with eight points. Taeland left Micras later in the year after being dissolved following Caputia's annexation of Hamland.
