The Bhutan Football Federation is the governing body of football in Bhutan, controlling the Bhutan national football team, Bhutan women's national football team, Bhutan national futsal team and Minifootball team.

History[edit]

The Bhutan Football Federation was founded in 1983, and has been a member of FIFA since 2000 and the Asian Football Confederation since 1993.

The Bhutan national football team was considered "the worst football team" up until 2015 when it won a World Cup qualifying game against Sri Lanka.[2]

In 2016, the BFF introduced the BFF Club Licensing Regulation to bring basic standards to the football economy of the country.[3]

In July 2017, the BFF Disciplinary Committee suspended Druk Pol F.C. for 2 years after a player disobeyed a referee during a match.[4]
