The Burkina Faso national football team is controlled by the Fédération Burkinabé de Foot-Ball. They were known as the Upper Volta national football team until 1984, when Upper Volta became Burkina Faso.
Their best finish in the Africa Cup of Nations was fourth in 1998, when they hosted the tournament.
The national association can look back on recent developments with a great deal of pride. Reaching the semi-finals of the African Cup of Nations on home soil in 1998, qualifying for the FIFA World Youth Championship UAE 2003, and winning the African U-17 Championship in 2011, as well as third place at the FIFA U-17 World Championship Trinidad & Tobago 2001 are Burkina Faso's outstanding achievements at international level.
