The NAFC Championship (also known as the North American Nations Cup) was an association football (soccer) tournament for teams in the area of North America between the years of 1947 and 1949. It was replaced by the CONCACAF Championship when the NAFC merged with the CCCF into CONCACAF in 1961.

After 41 years of absence, the NAFC Championship was revived in 1990 and 1991 for the North American zone as the North American Nations Cup before the introduction of the CONCACAF Gold Cup.

The Confederacion Centroamericana y del Caribe de Futbol (Football Confederation of Central America and the Caribbean) also organized the CCCF Championship from 1941 to 1961.
