All about Les Éléphants? Our Ivory Coast National Team TV schedule will have you set up to catch each game.
Officially known by FIFA by their French name Côte d’Ivoire, the Ivory Coast is the fifth-most decorated team in Africa when it comes to AFCON – the Africa Cup of Nations. In the premier international tournament on the continent, Ivory Coast has won twice and finished runners-up twice as well.
Ivory Coast also has a third-place medal at the similarly-named African Nations Championship. This tournament limits the national teams to players who play in their respective nation’s domestic leagues.
Until 1958, Ivory Coast was part of France and thus was not able to attempt qualifying for the World Cup. Once they became independent, they finally did attempt qualifying in 1975. But they wouldn’t succeed until 2006. That started a streak of three consecutive appearances. They never made it out of the group stage, but did win a game in each tournament.
Ivory Coast has produced many players that became familiar to world football fans. The likes of Didier Drogba, Yaya and Kolo Touré, and Wilfried Bony are among those who’ve suited up for the Elephants.
