Football in Iceland

There are 20,000 players (men and women) registered at clubs.[1][2][3][4] Football is the most popular sport in Iceland.[5][6][4] Iceland hosted the U-18 European Championship in 1997 but the only time the national team has ever qualified for the final competition of a major tournament was the women's national team for the UEFA Women's Euro in 2009 and 2013. They did so by placing second in their group during the group stage of the qualification round.

Iceland's most famous footballer is Eiður Guðjohnsen.[7][8][9] He has won two Premier League titles for Chelsea F.C. as well as the La Liga, Copa del rey and the Champions League title for FC Barcelona.[10]
