The Nederlands Antilliaanse Voetbal Unie (NAVU) was the governing body of football in the former Netherlands Antilles that consisted of the islands of Curaçao, Bonaire and (until 1986) Aruba.[2] In 2010, after the dissolution of the Netherlands Antilles its legal successor became the Curaçao Football Federation. Bonaire though is currently only CONCACAF-member, but not a FIFA member.

The NAVU controlled the Netherlands Antilles national football team which played games from 23 July 1934, a 3 - 1 win as Curaçao against Dutch Guiana, to its last game on 31 October 2010, a 2 - 2 draw against Suriname.
