The Mongolia national football team (Mongolian: Монголын хөлбөмбөгийн үндэсний шигшээ баг, Mongolyn khölbömbögiin ündesnii shigshee bag) represents Mongolia in international football and is controlled by the Mongolian Football Federation.

Founded in 1959, the association was inactive between 1960 and 1998 when the team did not feature in any international fixtures. The Mongolian Football Federation is a member of the Asian Football Confederation and the East Asian Football Federation.

History[edit]

Mongolia was accepted as a FIFA member in 1998[6] and competed in the 2002 FIFA World Cup qualification where they lost their first five matches before drawing 2-2 with Bangladesh.

Mongolia succeeded in qualifying past the first round for the first time in the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers by beating Brunei 3-2 over two legs.[7]

EAFF Suspension[edit]

According to the voting outcome at AFC Congress held in January 2011, the Mongolian Football Federation was suspended to conduct any activities at the EAFF until EAFF Ordinary Congress of March 2014.[8] They were welcomed back to the federation at The 7th Ordinary Congress and 41st & 42nd Executive Committee Meeting.[9]
