List of FIFA country codes

FIFA assigns a three-letter country code (more properly termed a trigramme or trigram) to each of its member and non-member countries. These are the official codes used by FIFA and its continental confederations (AFC, CAF, CONCACAF, CONMEBOL, OFC and UEFA) as name abbreviations of countries and dependent areas, in official competitions.

FIFA, IOC and ISO differences

For most countries, FIFA codes are the same as both the International Olympic Committee country codes used for the Olympic Games and the ISO 3166 country codes. When these two are different, FIFA usually choses one of the two, and for a few countries FIFA uses a distinct code:
