The Cuban Football Association, known as the Asociación de Fútbol de Cuba, control the national team on the island of Cuba. In 1938 Cuba became the first Caribbean team to qualify for the World Cup, making it to the quarter finals of the competition that year. In more recent times they have enjoyed success in the Caribbean Cup, winning the tournament in 2012.

The badge of the Asociación de Fútbol de Cuba takes a leaf out of the books of Greenland and the Chagos Islands. It uses the shape of the island of Cuba itself to dominate the centre of the badge.
