Know a senior level player of West Indian heritage and/or residency who would like to represent their region in international competition?
The West Indies Football Association is currently seeking players for participation in the 2014 VIVA World Cup, a tournament that pits non-FIFA national teams against each other in competition. Now in its fifth installment, the 2014 competition location has yet to be announced.
Established in June 2013, the West Indies Football Association was created by President James Baird, and a number of football colleagues, who recognized that there are a wealth of talented players slipping through the selection process for national team consideration in their respective countries. Players who desire to be considered for the squad should email their CV and other particular football information to .
With an immediate goal of fielding the senior squad, locating a home ground and securing sponsorship for the team’s participation in next year’s VIVA World Cup, the association team is putting out a call for supporters and sponsors, inside and outside of the region to team up on the effort. It is their hope that, with a solid foundation in place, a youth academy is the anticipated next step in strengthening the West Indies Football Association’s reputation for developing global talent.

The West Indies Football Association was set up in June 2013 although there was a previous Association many years ago in the 50's called the British Caribbean football Association. It was a Caribbean select team that played matches mostly against British opposition.
The Association will produce a national football program and Youth program so that West Indian nationals who haven't had the chance to represent there countries can taste and experience International football.
The West Indies FA or WIFA is managed by a 6 person management committee and a technical team who will do its up-most to represent the West Indies with Honor and Pride.
Please come out and support us and stay tuned for our squad announcement and upcoming fixtures.
