1932 Estonian Football Championship

The 1932 Estonian Football Championship was the 12th official football league season in Estonia. Six teams, four from Tallinn and two from Narva, took part in the league. Each team played every opponent twice, one at home and once on the road, for total of 10 games. VS Sport Tallinn successfully defended their title, winning the league for the eight time in the club's history.

1936 Baltic Cup

The 1936 Baltic Cup was held in Riga, Latvia on 20–22 August 1935. It was the eighth time three Baltic states — Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania — came together to play a friendly tournament and determine the best team amongst them. Latvia won the tournament beating both opponents 2–1.

1937–38 Estonian Football Championship

The 1937–38 Estonian Football Championship was the 17th official football league season in Estonia. Eight teams took part in the league six from Tallinn, one from Pärnu and Narva. JS Estonia Tallinn finished first, clinching their fourth consecutive league title.

1938 FIFA World Cup qualification

A total of 37 teams entered the 1938 FIFA World Cup qualification rounds, competing for a total of 16 spots in the final tournament. For the first time the title holders and the host country were given automatic qualification. Therefore, France, as the hosts, and Italy, as the defending champions, qualified automatically, leaving 14 spots open for competition.

Due to the Spanish Civil War, Spain withdrew from the competition. The remaining 34 teams were divided into 12 groups, based on geographical considerations, as follows:

Groups 1 to 9 - Europe: 11 places, contested by 23 teams (including Egypt and Palestine).

Groups 10 and 11 - The Americas: 2 places, contested by 9 teams.

Group 12 - Asia: 1 place, contested by 2 teams.However, due to the withdrawal of Austria after qualifying (they had been annexed by Germany), only 15 teams actually competed in the final tournament. FIFA did not offer participation to the runner-up of the group that Austria had played in, Latvia.

A total of 21 teams played at least one qualifying match. A total of 22 qualifying matches were played, and 96 goals were scored (an average of 4.36 per match).

1938 FIFA World Cup qualification (UEFA – Group 1)

The four teams in this group would play against each other once. The group winner and runner-up would qualify for the 1938 FIFA World Cup held in France.

Estonia national football team

The Estonia national football team (Estonian: Eesti jalgpallikoondis) represents Estonia in international football and is controlled by the Estonian Football Association (Eesti Jalgpalli Liit), the governing body for football in Estonia. Estonia play their home matches at the A. Le Coq Arena in Tallinn, Estonia.

Estonia's first match was held against Finland in 1920, being a 6–0 defeat. The team participated in the 1924 Olympic Games tournament, their only participation. In 1940, Estonia was occupied by the Soviet Union and did not regain independence (and the possibility of a national football team) until 1991. Estonia's first FIFA recognised match as an independent nation after the break-up of the Soviet Union, was against Slovenia on 3 June 1992, a 1–1 draw in the Estonian capital city of Tallinn.

Estonia have never qualified for the FIFA World Cup or UEFA European Championship. The team have however reached the UEFA Euro 2012 qualifying play-offs, by finishing second in their qualifying group, before being drawn up against Ireland for a play-off tie, making 2011 the Annus mirabilis of Estonian football.

Estonia has also participated in the local sub-regional Baltic Cup championship, which takes place every two years between the countries of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. Estonia has won the Baltic Cup tournament three times—most recently in 1938—which is the least of all three Baltic states.

The record for the most international caps by an international is held by Martin Reim with 157, who held the European record in 2009 until November of that year. In September 2016, Reim was appointed team manager. The record for most goals is held by Andres Oper with 38.
