The Irish Minifootball team was formed in 2013 to compete in events initially all across Europe.


The Irish Minifootball Association was granted the license to operate the national team by the European Minifootball Federation (EMF) at a meeting April 2013.


The Irish team played its first competitive matches in miniEURO 2013 in Rethmyno, Crete, playing three matches against Moldova, Israel and Montenegro, before some friendlies also took place with the aim of the squad gaining experience.


The Irish Minifootball Association has already confirmed that the team will again take part in miniEURO again in 2014, with the host nation to be decided, they will then aim to compete in the World Cup, which is planned to take place in 2015.

In June 2014 the Irish Minifootball Association announced the appointment of Lee Kill as team Manager. His first act as manager was to attend the Irish National 6 a side Soccer Championships,, where he was involved in scouting a new squad of players to compete in miniEURO2014.

In 2015 the squad was again led by 2013 skipper Conor Buckley (who missed the 2014 event due to personal reasons) and the team performed admirably, winning its first ever match, beating Turkey.
