gibraltar

Gibraltar became a member of UEFA at the London Congress in May 2013 following a protracted battle which saw the Gibraltar Football Association (GFA) take UEFA to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

Following its acceptance by UEFA, the GFA was accepted as a FIFA member in May 2016 becoming FIFA's 211th member immediately after the Football Federation of Kosovo became the 210th member at the 66th Congress in Mexico City.

Gibraltar is the second smallest UEFA member in terms of population, only San MArino has a smaller population, and is the smallest member in terms of area.
