FA Sápmi is a football association which is the organizer of the Sápmi football team representing the indigenous Sámi people. It is a member of the Confederation of Independent Football Associations (ConIFA), but not a member of either FIFA or UEFA.[1] President of the FA Sápmi is Håkan Kuorak from Jokkmokk, Sweden.[2]

FA Sápmi was established in March 2014 as the successor of the 2003 founded Sámi Football Association (SSL, Northern Sami: Sámi Spábbáčiekčanlihttu), which had not been active in few years and had some financial trouble.[2] FA Sápmi is the host of 2014 ConIFA World Football Cup.[3]
