The Tanzania Football Federation (TFF) (Swahili: Shirikisho la Mpira wa Miguu Tanzania), previously Football Association of Tanzania, is the governing body of football in Tanzania. It controls the Tanzania national football team. It was founded in 1930 and has been affiliated with FIFA since 1964. Jamal Malinzi is the new President of the Tanzania Football Federation, succeeding to Leodegar Tenga in October 2013.[1]

In January 2008 the Tanzania Football Federation in partnership with Peter Johnson created the Tanzania Soccer Academy (TSA), a national academy to develop football and provide full education scholarships to players.[2][3][4]
