The British Virgin Islands national football team is the national team of the British Virgin Islands and is controlled by the British Virgin Islands Football Association. A member of CONCACAF, it is among its weakest teams. In the qualifying rounds for the 2006 World Cup they had a quite tough draw against St Lucia, and they were eliminated 10-0 on aggregate. [1]

In the qualifying rounds for the 2010 World Cup they were paired with the Bahamas. They put in a much improved performance but lost on the away goals rule after a 3-3 draw over both legs (both matches were actually played in Bahamas, but British Virgin Islands were designated as the home team in the second match, which ended 2-2).

[2] Bizarrely, despite going out of the competition in the first qualifying round the British Virgin Islands were the only side to enter the 2010 World Cup to remain unbeaten through qualification and the finals tournament.
