The Brazilian Football Confederation (Portuguese: Confederação Brasileira de Futebol or CBF) is the governing body of football in Brazil. It was founded on June 8, 1914, as Confederação Brasileira de Desportos (CBD), meaning Brazilian Sports Confederation. Its first president was Álvaro Zamith. It organizes the Brazilian national competitions, like Campeonato Brasileiro de Futebol (all four levels) and Copa do Brasil. CBF also administers the Brazil national football team and the Brazil women's national football team. Brazilian clubs with professional football teams are the members of CBF; the state federations, which organize the state championships, are subordinated to the CBF. Each member club is associated both to CBF and to the State's local federation, just like national associations are both members of FIFA and of the respective continental confederation.

The organization is based in Barra da Tijuca neighborhood, Rio de Janeiro, Rio de Janeiro state. The confederation owns a training center, named Granja Comary, located in Teresópolis.[1]

It was announced on September 29, 2007 that the CBF would launch a women's league and cup competition in October 2007 following pressure from FIFA president Sepp Blatter during the 2007 FIFA Women's World Cup in China.[2][3]
