  IVORY COAST  
     
     
 

The Ivory Coast national football team represents Ivory Coast in international football and is controlled by the Fédération Ivoirienne de Football (FIF), the governing body for football in Ivory Coast.

The FIF was founded in1960, became a member of FIFA in 1964, and a member of CAF in 1960. The Ivory Coast Ligue 1 is the top division of the Fédération Ivoirienne de Football, and was created in 1960. Since then, Ivory Coast's top clubs have been ASEC Mimosas with 24 championships and Africa Sports with 17.

Ivory Coast is one the most successful football teams in Africa. The Ivoirians won the African Cup of Nations two times in 1994 and 2015, and qualified for the last three consecutive FIFA World Cups (including the 2014 World Cup). The new talented golden generation will surely give much to talk about in the coming years.
