The Korea Football Association (Korean: 대한축구협회 Daehan Chukgu Hyeophoe) is the governing body of football in South Korea. The first governing body of Korean football was the Joseon Football Association (Korean: 조선축구협회; Hanja: 朝鮮足球協會), founded on 19 September 1933. Park Seung-bin was the very first President of the KFA, charged with the task of promoting and spreading organised football in the Korea. The budget for 2011 was ₩103,123,529,503.
Korea has a long football-playing history. In ancient times, there was a Korean ball game called chuk-guk very similar in form to contemporary football. However, Koreans first saw the present version of football in 1882 when British crew members played a game while their vessel was visiting the port of Incheon.
The Korea Football Association was reinstated in 1948, following the establishment of the Republic of Korea. The KFA became a member of FIFA, the international football governing body that same year. It later joined the AFC (Asian Football Confederation) in 1954.
