The Northern Ireland national futsal team represents Northern Ireland during international futsal competitions such as the FIFA Futsal World Cup and the UEFA Euro Championships. The team is governed by the Irish Football Association. The team was formed in 2016 as futsal gained popularity in Northern Ireland in 2015.

Home matches are played at Newry Leisure Centre. Friendly matches are played with teams from other European nations, and Northern Ireland also compete in the Home Nations Championship against England, Scotland and Wales each season. Northern Ireland entered qualification for the FIFA World Futsal Cup for the first time in 2019 [2] and qualification for the UEFA Euro Championships for the first time in 2020.[3] The team have yet to advance from a qualification tournament.
