The Surrey Representative Football Team represents the county of Surrey, England, in both inter-county and international football and is controlled by International Surrey Football. The team was founded in June 2014 following a failed attempt to arrange a fixture against the Sealand national football team by the Dale-Westland Football Union due to a shortage of players available in the micronational community, it was seen by instead focusing of regionalised football the increased access to non-league players would both ease the demand for players and increase the quality of the team involved.

Between its founding in 2014 and mid-2016 former Dale citizen James Hunt was considered the unofficial manager of the Surrey representative team, but with little progression, only 4 players, president Danny Clarke and manager James Hunt included, having agreed to play, it wasn't until the official appointment of a then serving manager, Michael Lee Charles of Alton Football club, on August 17, 2016, that the team finally began to take shape with 10 players announced in the space of 2 days. On August 26, 2016, International Surrey Football announced the appointment of its first ever assistant manager, Badshot Lea assistant manager, Matthew Angell, would eventually step down from the role. The ISF would welcome their third member of their coaching staff Aldershot Town FC Academy and A.F.C. Bournemouth youth coach Lee Collier on September 24, 2016. The latest member of coaching staff was that of Liam Parrington, former West Ham United and England Youth International, appointed September 1, 2017. Michael Lee Charles was replaced with Surrey first team coach, Liam Parrington, on September 5, 2017 after becoming the manager cloeset to achieving a fixture without successfully playing one.

International Surrey Football lacked notable media coverage for most of its early history with the Dale News Agency, owned and operated by ISF founder Danny Clarke, providing any news coverage of the team and its expansion following its appointment of Michael Lee Charles as manager. However, this began to change following the announcement of its debut game against ConIFA member Barawa. The ISF had quickly changed the flow of media interest in the county team following the news with a number of news and radio journalist switching their attention to the ISF allowing for the greater publicity of the game to be made.
Following its foundation as the Surrey Independent Football Association, the team was expected to follow the colours of the Dale National Football Team, blue, white and red, with the only change being blue instead of red socks and had been planned as the team kit for both the scheduled, but ultimately cancelled games against Sealand and Sussex. However, with the resurgence in development of the team with its number of appointments and acquisitions it was decided the team would alter it's kits to better reflect the colours of the county flag, which consists of a checkered pattern of blue and gold, giving rise to one of the team's main social media hashtags, #GoldandBlue. on December 23, 2017 and January 26, 2018, International Surrey Football officially unveiled their first front shirt sponsor as well as sleeve sponsors DE Photo and JMA Programmes which we're both added to the Surrey kit in February 2018.

The Surrey Representative Football Team does not technically have a designated home stadium and will ideally play in a number of grounds across Surrey and South West London in order to help spread awareness of its presence and ease travel to allow a larger number of players to compete for the team. With a number of cost effective grounds throughout Surrey because of the number of predominately non-league clubs, only 3 league clubs, it means it is reasonable for International Surrey Football to play throughout Surrey and find appropriate grounds to meet any possible demands in attendance that may occur as well as finding grounds that could meet possible media or security demands based on the profile and opposition involved in a given fixture.
While International Surrey Football has no agreement with an official Surrey training facility it can be viewed the Surrey Sports Park, in Guildford, would be the most likely and most comparable facility for Surrey to the England national football team's St. George's Park. The facility opened in 2010, has hosted a number of teams competing in competitions in England such as the 2012 Olympics, 2010 Women's Rugby World Cup and Harlequins rugby club's official training facility. On August 9, 2017, International Surrey Football announced the intention to identify 5 National Training Centres in Surrey and South West London which form the main training facilities for the Surrey representative teams similar to similar facilities used by other national teams such as the Football Association, Canadian Football Association, and French Football Association. The titles are unofficial and are used to make players and coaches more aware of where training sessions could likely occur rather than any formal cooperation between International Surrey Football and the 5 facilities in question.
Facilities are grouped into 3 categories that could be applied to any facility regardless of whether or not it's part of the National Training Centre Network.
