History

Organized soccer has been played in the Faroes since late 19th century. The first Faroese national football league (Meistaradeildin) was held in 1942. From 1942 until 1978 all Faroese football was governed by ÍSF (the Faroese Sports Association). On 13 January 1979 the Faroese Football Association was established. At first it worked with organising Faroese football. The first Faroese national football league for women was held in 1985.

In the 1980s the Faroese Football Association started training coaches and managers. At first it was done with help from Denmark, but since the mid 1990s this training has been under full Faroese responsibility.

On 2 July 1988 the Faroe Islands gained membership of FIFA, and on 18 April 1990 they gained membership of UEFA. Since then the Faroes have participated in international football competitions.
