The Guernsey official football team is the official football team for the Bailiwick of Guernsey, which is not part of the United Kingdom but is a crown dependency. They are not affiliated with FIFA or UEFA, and therefore cannot compete for the FIFA World Cup or UEFA European Football Championship. Since 1905, they have competed with Alderney and Jersey for the Muratti Vase, winning it 46 times, most recently in 2014. The players are selected from the Guernsey leagues, with the top Division being the FNB Priaulx League.

Guernsey Football went under a transformation at the start of the 2011–12 season when Guernsey F.C. was created, which led to the vast majority of the top Island players competing in the English non-league pyramid system for the very first time.

The team is coached by Stephen Sharman who was appointed in September 2013 after Kevin Graham stepped down.[1]
