If you’ve never rooted for Iceland, prepare for that to change in about two minutes.
The Football Association of Iceland released an incredible hype video for its new national team crest on Wednesday that will leave you asking when the full feature film is released.
Crashing waves, lava and snow cliffs in the first 10 seconds? Hooked.

The video details the elements that went into the design of the new crest symbolic of the Icelandic heritage, its history and the national team’s spirit. Men’s national team goalkeeper Hannes Þór Halldórsson is also a filmmaker and helped produce the video.
It certainly has some early “Game of Thrones” vibes and storytelling. The “landlords” shown in the video are supernatural creatures that lived in the country when settlers arrived and they protected it from far. The federation shared moving stills of the creatures on their website in explaining the make of the crest.
So, yeah, get ready to read up on Iceland for when national competition returns.
The men’s team became the lowest-populated country to qualify for the World Cup in 2018 after shooting up the rankings over the decade.
The women’s team is also on the rise, ranking No. 19 in the world and narrowly missing a spot in the 2019 Women’s World Cup.
