Below is a listing of the first intercollegiate game (involving at least one American school) played in each nation and territory.

Note: Keep in mind these are intercollegiate games (college vs. college).

The list below is also continuously being researched. The games listed are to the knowledge of this site, the most accurate and correct representation of the first game in each nation. But as more documented games/locations are uncovered, there is the possibility that changes will need to be made to the list.
