The Tamil Eelam Football Association (TEFA) was established as a joint venture by Tamil Youth around the world through the Global Tamil Youth League (T-League). While football has been played in Tamil Eelam and the Diaspora for many years, the formation of a national team was only established in 2012. The same year Tamil Eelam participated in its first international tournament, the VIVA World Cup. In 2014 they ended 11th in the ConIFA World Football Cup.
Tamileelam is an occupied state on the island of Ceylon (now called Sri Lanka) in the Indian Ocean. It encompasses the northern and eastern regions of the island, with Trincomalee serving as the capital city. The 3 million Tamil people constitute a distinct nation, and form a distinct social entity through their rich history, traditions, culture, and language. Tamileelam is home to the Tamils.
