The England C National Football Team (previously known as the England National Game XI and the England Semi-Pro national team) is the football team that represents England at non-league level. Formed in 1979 as the England Non-League team, it features players who play for clubs outside of the Football League. Many players who have been capped at non-league level have gone on to play at a higher level. Currently, the majority of selected players are full-time professionals with Conference National league clubs.

Home matches are played at various League and non-league grounds around the country. Friendly matches are played with equivalent teams from other nations, and compete in the Four Nations Tournament each season, along with Scotland, Wales and the full Gibraltar teams. They won the tournament for the seventh time in May 2008, winning all three of their matches without conceding a goal. They are also the current holders of the European Challenge Trophy. The team has been managed by Paul Fairclough since January 2003, who used to manage Barnet until he left the club by mutual consent in December 2008.

The team reached the final of the 2011 International Challenge Trophy, played at Northampton Town's Sixfields Stadium.
