The Yemen national football team is the national team of Yemen and is controlled by the Yemen Football Association.

When the nation was split into North Yemen and South Yemen before 1990, two national teams existed. After unification, the Yemen national football team is considered the successor of the North Yemen national football team. See the article South Yemen national football team for details on the South Yemen team.

Yemen (or North Yemen) has never appeared in the World Cup or the Asian Cup. The only appearance by any Yemeni team in the Asian Cup was that by South Yemen in 1976.
