The Costa Rican Football Federation (Spanish: Federación Costarricense de Fútbol, FCRF), also known as FEDEFUTBOL or FEDEFUT, is the official association football governing body in Costa Rica and is in charge of the Costa Rica national football team.

History[edit]

On June 13, 1921, the Liga Nacional de Fútbol was created by Liga Deportiva Alajuelense, Club Sport Cartaginés, Club Sport Herediano, Club Sport La Libertad, Sociedad Gimnástica Española de San José, Club Sport La Unión de Tres Ríos and Sociedad Gimnástica Limonense to direct and organize football in Costa Rica. In 1931, the league was centralized and renamed Federación Deportiva de Costa Rica, then Federación Nacional de Fútbol and then in the 1970s to Federación Costarricense de Fútbol (FEDEFUTBOL).
