The Denmark League XI national football team is an unofficial national football team run by the Danish Football Association.

The team generally consists of Danish players playing in the Danish Superliga, or other leagues if the clubs there agree to release them. It is only assembled in the start of the year, during the winter break in the Superliga.

The matches of the League XI have generally not been recognised as official matches by the Danish FA, although FIFA recognise matches until 2007.[1]

History

Since its first match in 1983, (although the Scottish League XI played the Danish Football Combination in 1955.)[1] the team has been assembled every year except 2005 (because of an early World Cup qualification match)[2] and 2011 (where no suitable trip could be arranged)[3] in January or February.[4]

Players

The purpose of the league XI is to give the head coach an opportunity to evaluate the level of the best players of the Superliga, and to introduce new players into the atmosphere of the national team.[1]
