However, French Guiana is a member of CONCACAF and CFU, and thus eligible for all competitions organized by both. Indeed, according to the status of the FFF (article 34, paragraph 6): "Under the control of related continental confederations, and with the agreement of the FFF, those leagues can organize international sport events at a regional level or set up teams in order to participate to them."
A special rule of the Gold Cup only allows players to join the team if they have not played for France during the past five years. This rule also applies for Guadeloupe and Martinique. On the other side, any player joining the Guianese team is allowed to join the French national team later with no time restrictions.
