The team was created following the introduction of professional-level football in France in 1932. Although it is not the same team as the France Olympic football team, the amateurs participated in the qualification phases for the Olympic Games in 1960 and 1980.
During the 1967 Mediterranean Games, the final between France and Italy finished in a 0–0 draw. The referees decided to determine a winner via a coin toss, which Italy won. However, the organizational committee overturned this decision and declared both countries as winners. In their next five Mediterranean Games appearances, France finished runners-up three times in 1975, 1979, and 1987.
