The Martinique national football team (French: sélection de Martinique de football) is the regional team of the French overseas department and region of Martinique and is controlled by the Ligue de Football de Martinique, local branch of Federation Francaise de Football.

As an overseas department of the French Republic, it is not a member of FIFA. Martinique is therefore not eligible to enter the World Cup, Martinicans being French citizens eligible to play for the French national football team.

However, Martinique is a member of CONCACAF and CFU, and thus eligible for all competitions organized by both. Indeed, according to the status of the FFF (article 34, paragraph 6): "[...]Under the control of related continental confederations, and with the agreement of the FFF, those leagues can organize international sport events at a regional level or set up teams in order to partipate to them."

A special rule of the Gold Cup only allows players to join the team if they have not played for France during the past five years. This rule also applies for Guadeloupe and French Guiana. On the other side, any player joining the Martinican team is allowed to join the French national team afterwards with no time restrictions. Frederic Piquionne played this way for Martinique before wearing France's jersey.

The Martinique football team made three Gold Cups, even getting to the quarterfinals in 2002. It was narrowly defeated by Canada on penalties. The Martinique football team also won the Caribbean Cup in 1993.
