Ellan Vannin

Conifa world ranking 4


The Isle of Man is a self-governing crown dependency, located in the Irish Sea between the Islands Great Britain and Ireland. It is inhabited since at least 6500 BC and is one of the six Celtic nations.
The legislature of the Isle of Man, called “Tynwald”, was put into place by Vikings more than 1,000 years ago and thus is the oldest continuous parliamentary body in the world. Ellan Vannin, which is the name of the Isle of Man in Manx, is a representative team of Manx people. Together with Countea De Nissa Ellan Vannin was the surprise of the first CONIFA World Football Cup. No team could beat the three legs during the 90 minutes. They lost the final against Countea De Nissa after a penalty shoot out. Formed in 2013 the Manx International Football Alliance (MIFA) is giving people of Manx heritage the chance to play fully internationally football. Ellan Vannin is the twin team of Darfur United, as MIFA helps the refugee team.
