The Duwamish men's national soccer team represents Duwamish in international soccer and is controlled by the Duwamish Soccer Federation. Duwamish maintains its own national side that competes in all major professional tournaments, including the Simlympic Games. The majority of Duwamish's home matches are held at the national stadium, the Dawson Bowl, with friendly matches sometimes hosted at other stadiums including Kalama Stadium and the Devine Athletics Pitch.
Duwamish has qualified for the AIFF World Cup once, to appear in the 2011 tournament, and got third place in the inaugural edition of the COFR Cup. The team have achieved some noteworthy results and winning streaks, notably the unbeaten streak between August and October of 2010, all friendlies, and a 6–0 win over Starfishland during the streak. The team also oversees a related under-20 squad that began play in September 2010 during the U20 World Cup.
The Duwamish men's national soccer team began playing in the AIFF on August 1, 2010, during the first of four friendlies against Illu'a. The game, held at Illu'a National Stadium in Colbitz, ended in a 4–1 win, with Cleveland Keller earning a hat-trick. The following match, held on August 4, at the Dawson Bowl, ended in a 0–0 draw. The third match, away in Illu'a on August 7, ended in a 2–1 win. During the final match on August 10, at Koalas Stadium, Duwamish again won 4–1 and Cleveland Keller gained his second hat-trick. After the August 10th win over Illu'a, Cleveland Keller was named the team's vice-captain and set to replace current captain and goalkeeper James Smith upon retirement. On August 24, after a 2-day delay due to weather issues, the team defeated the Starfishland men's national team 6–0 at Devine Athletics Pitch in Bremerton. Cleveland Keller scored early in the 13th minute and after the goalkeeper for Starfishland, M. Duffy, was sent off in the next minute, Keller scored on a penalty. In the 31st minute, Nate Lee scored, his second overall. Keller scored shortly before halftime to earn a hat-trick, his third overall. Lee continued to score in the 51st and 76th minutes, earning him his first hat-trick.
On September 1, the team drew 3–3 against the Escambian national team in a breast cancer awareness match. Adrian Meyer scored the first recorded own goal in AIFF history in the 26th minute. Nate Lee gained a hat-trick by scoring in the 38th, 75th and 85th minutes. Three days later, Duwamish continued their undefeated streak by winning 3–1 over Wiki at Wiki National Stadium after recovering from a 0–1 deficit. Nate Lee earned his third straight international hat-trick by scoring in the 54th, 56th and 78th minutes. The following Wednesday, September 8th, the team won against Wiki again, at the Dawson Bowl, with a 2–0 score, Nate Lee scoring in the 15th and Cleveland Keller scoring again a minute later. The following week, again at the Dawson Bowl, the team defeated the Petrovar national team 2–1. In the 29th minute, Rishi Talwar of Petrova scored on James Smith's initial save.

Insulo's Vincent Snelling got a late goal in the 85th minute, but it wasn't enough to equalize.

The team tied 4–4 against Lisieux on November 25, 2010, with Cleveland Keller scoring twice and Lisieux having two own goals. Lisieux came to an early 3–1 lead with a hat-trick from Roland Modeste, but a red card and two own goals along with a second Duwamishite goal tied up the game.
Duwamish played the Escambians at Cowlitz Riverside Stadium two days later, in what appears to be the final friendly of 2010, where they received their largest loss overall, a 5–2 defeat. Cleveland Keller put Duwamish up 1–0 early, but Jaron Oral scored a hat-trick and Cleveland Keller scored two additional goals—an own goal and a regular goal—to make the score 4–1 late. In injury time, Keller tripped Oral within Duwamish's penalty box and Oral later scored on the ensuing penalty.
