The Philippine national football team is the national team of the Philippines and it is governed by the Philippine Football Federation (PFF).

Despite being one of the oldest national teams in Asia, the Philippines has never had any significant success on the international stage. They are currently one of the weakest teams in the world and did not enter the qualification for the 2006 and 2010 FIFA World Cup tournaments in order to focus more on developing youth football and gaining international experience in regional tournaments such as the Southeast Asian Games.

Established in 1907, the Philippine national football team is the oldest team in Asia. The team enjoyed success in its early periods between 1913 to the 1930s, however the team never had any significant success on the international stage after the 1940s.

Recent history

In September 2006 the country fell to 195th on the FIFA ranking scale, its lowest ever. By the end of the year, the Philippines moved back up to 171th overall, after qualifying for the 2007 ASEAN Football Championship with a 4-1 win over Brunei. However, their failure to advance from the preliminaries dropped the country's ranking to 179th. The recent string of poor performances caused the Philippines to refuse to enter the qualification stages for the 2010 FIFA World Cup.[1]

Kit

Past team Jersey

Current 2008 AFC Challenge Cup Kit

In March 9, 2008 the Philippine Football Federation has a signed three-year, P9-million contract with Mizuno Corporation to become the PFF's official outfitter and a major partner in its grassroots development programs.

The Home kit Jersey colors now appears in an "all-Red" combination (Red Jersey, Red Shorts and Red Socks). The Away kit colors comes similarly in an "all-White" combination (White Jersey, White Shorts and White Socks).

Past kit history : Previous manufacturers were Adidas and Asics.

The previous home kit was dark blue with a v-neck collar and has black sides. On the sleeves there is a diamond-type lining and the Philippine national flag on both. The Mizuno logo is on the left-hand side and the logo of the PFF is on the right-hand side. The numbering is on the middle. The previous away jersey was no longer red, but rather white with light blue sides. It has the same characteristics as the home kit. The Philippines traditionally had red away jerseys.
