The Batavia national football team is the football team which represents the Jingdaoese constituent nation of Batavia, and previously represented the independent kingdom of the same name. It is a member of the WMFA.
The team was founded in late 2007 after Batavia's Micrasian claim was successful. The team competed in its first World Cup qualifiers the following year, where it was drawn against Tellia. However, the Tellians withdrew from the WMFA sector, meaning Batavia advanced to the second round of qualifying as a result of a 10–0 aggregate scoreline forfeit. The team beat Beaugium 2–0 on aggregate to qualify for the 2008 FMF World Cup. In the finals, the team finished third in its group after losing their first two games but beating Toketi 7–4 in their final match.
In 2009, the team finished second in their qualifying group, placing ahead of Shireroth on goals scored. This meant that the team advanced to the play-offs, where they beat Ashkenatza to qualify. In their second consecutive World Cup appearance, the team finished third in their group, this time missing-out on advancing after losing their final game to Alexandria.
The team won its qualifying group in 2010, only losing one game. The team also topped its group in the finals, advancing to the knock-out stages for the first time. However, the team lost to hosts and eventual finalists Hamland 5–3 in the quarter-finals.
In the 2011 qualifiers, the team finished top of the WMFA's sole six-team group, finishing three points above Tellia. In their finals group, the team could only draw two games as they finished third, equal on points to débutants Babkha in fourth.
The team finished second in their five-team 2012 qualifying group and advanced to the WMFA play-off against Ashkenatza, winning 6–4 on aggregate to qualify. In the finals, the team advanced from their group with four points, behind hosts Antica by a point, before losing 2–1 to Hamland in the quarter-finals in extra time. The team also sealed their place in the first ever Benacia Cup later in the year, where they topped their group before losing 1–0 to Tellia in the final.
