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, as well as the regional competition Copa do Nordeste. 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.
