The newest of UEFA's 54 member associations, UEFA EURO 2016 marks Gibraltar's maiden qualifying campaign. The country has had a senior representative side since 1923, though their competitive experience is mainly drawn from the Island Games, in which they have participated since 1993 – despite Gibraltar not being an island. They lost all their matches on their debut but were runners-up in 1995 and triumphed in 2007. Four years later, in March 2011, they beat the Faroe Islands 3-0 in a friendly.

With around 30,000 citizens, Gibraltar is the least populous of the UEFA member nations. Indeed, the lack of a suitable stadium in the country means that Gibraltar will play their home qualifiers in the Algarve region of southern Portugal. That was where they staged their very first international, on 19 November 2013, and things got off to an encouraging start as Allen Bula's side held Slovakia to a goalless draw at Estádio Algarve.
