- List of FIFA country codes
FIFA assigns a three-letter country code (more properly termed a trigramme or trigram) to each of its member and non-member countries. These are the official codes used by FIFA and its continental confederations (AFC, CAF, CONCACAF, CONMEBOL, OFC and UEFA) as name abbreviations of countries and dependent areas, in official competitions. The FIFA designations are also sometimes used outside of association football in other sports, e.g. snooker.

There are currently 208 FIFA members, each one with its unique country code.
Non-FIFA member codes
The following codes refer to countries or dependent areas that are currently not affiliated with FIFA, but whose codes either appear in the FIFA results database, or are used regularly by confederation websites.
