The Zamastan national football team represents Zamastan in men's international football and is overseen by the Zamastan Soccer League (ZSL). It is a member of the Euronia Football Confederation, playing in the WEFF federation. The team's colors are dark blue, white and cyan, and the coq gaulois its symbol. Zamastan's players are colloquially known as The Whitecaps. They are the most successful team in the World Cup, having won six titles, their most recent title being at the 2019 World Cup in Emerald. They have also qualified for 39 of 50 total World Cups, making them the most prolific team in the tournament. In addition, Zamastan's national team has won 8 EFC Nations Leagues and 23 WEFF Cups.

Zamastan has also hosted four World Cup tournaments (1978 in Tregueux, 1993 in Tofino, 2009 in Providence, and 2019 in Emerald), reaching the finals in 1993 and winning the title in 2019.

History

Early years

The first Zamastanian national soccer team was constituted in 1895, when it played Caspiaa in the first ever international football match. Caspiaa defeated Zamastan 1–0 in Providence, Northern Isle. Zamastan got revenge when it played its first official international match under the auspices of Zamastan Soccer on July 12th, 1904, against Caspiaa in Viitaniemi, where Zamastan won 2-0.

The team has qualified for all but eleven World Cup tournaments (missing 1975, 1976, 1979, 1982, 1983, 1989, 1992, 1994, 1997, 2007, and 2015).

Colors and badge

On April 8th, 2008, it was officially announced the club would continue using the "Whitecaps" name, but with a redesigned logo. The name alludes to the geographic features of the Zian Mountains and Louise Mountains, and the extensive coastline of Zamastan: snow-capped mountains and Olympic Ocean and Cantalle Ocean whitecap waves.

The official club colors include navy blue ("deep sea"), white, and light blue ("Whitecaps blue"). The "deep sea" blue represents the maritime landscape of the coastline and the "Whitecaps blue" indicates the reflection of the Zian and Louise Mountains. The lighter shade of blue also alludes to the primary color of the original Whitecaps. The silver outline pays homage to the team's championship victories since their first in 1977 in Tyrnatini, Vuswistan.

In 2023, the redesign of the home and away kits emphasized each theme more prominently. The home kits were introduced with purely navy blue design, while the away kits were adorned with mountains around the base of the shirts.
