Geography of association football

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The following article gives a list of association football confederations, sub-confederations and associations around the world. The sport's international governing body is FIFA, but those associations not affiliated with FIFA are also included in this article.

Most European, African, and Asian countries have two principal competitions: a more prestigious league which is typically a double round-robin tournament restricted to the elite clubs, and a cup which is a single-elimination tournament open to both the elite and lesser clubs.

In the Americas, leagues are often organised as either multi-stage tournaments or separate Apertura and Clausura stages.

By continent[edit]

Affiliated with FIFA[edit]

There are currently 211 national associations which are members of FIFA. An additional 12 associations are full or associate members of a FIFA intercontinental confederation, but not members of FIFA.
