This is a BLK Cocos (Keeling) Islands national team home jersey as worn by the team throughout the 2017-19 period.

The Cocos (Keeling) Islands are an external territory of Australia located in the Indian Ocean off the coast of the Indonesian island of Sumatra. The population of the territory is approximately 600 and consists predominantly of Cocos Malays, who mostly practise Sunni Islam and speak a dialect of Malay as their first language. Football is the most popular sport in the islands, with their representative team playing on an annual basis in the Inter-Island Cup against the Christmas Island national team, a fellow external territory of Australia. Records of the Inter-Island Cup date back to 1994, however it is likely the competition was played for many years prior to this and it is believed that these are the only international matches in both the Christmas Islands & Cocos (Keeling) Islands team’s history.
