The N.F.-Board (Nouvelle Fédération-Board), is a federation of football associations established on 12 December 2003. It is made up of teams that represent nations, dependencies, unrecognized states, minorities, stateless peoples, regions and micronations not affiliated to FIFA. One of the founders is Luc Misson, a lawyer who represented Belgian footballer Jean-Marc Bosman in a case that led to the Bosman ruling.[2]

The N.F.-Board states that everyone has the "right to play competitive football".,[3] They also organized the VIVA World Cup which took place for the first time in November 2006, in Occitania.
