The France national football team (French: Équipe de France) represents France in international football and is controlled by the  French Football Federation (French: Fédération Française de Football, FFF), the governing body for football in France.

The FFF was founded in1919, became a member of FIFA in 1904, and a member of UEFA in 1954. Although football made its debut in France in 1872, the FFF was founded 47 years later. The first division championship of French football was contested through a league ran by the Union des Sociétés Françaises de Sports Athlétiques, an organization that supported amateur sport. The league ran from 1894–1919. The first champion of the amateur era was Standard Athletic Club in 1893-1894. Ligue 1, the French professional league, was inaugurated in 1932. The first champion of the professional era was Olympique Lillois, now known as Lille, who defeated Cannes 4–3 on 14 May 1933 in Colombes.

France is one of the most successful teams in the world. The French have won one World Cup title (1998), two UEFA European Championships (1984, 2000), one Olympic Tournament (1984), and two Confederations Cups (2001, 2003).
