We construct the 12-dimensional exceptional field theory (EFT) associated to the group SL(2)×R+SL(2)×R+. Demanding the closure of the algebra of local symmetries leads to a constraint, known as the section condition, that must be imposed on all fields. This constraint has two inequivalent solutions, one giving rise to 11-dimensional supergravity and the other leading to F-theory. Thus SL(2)×R+SL(2)×R+ EFT contains both F-theory and M-theory in a single 12-dimensional formalism.
