The Football Association of the Czech Republic (Czech: Fotbalová asociace České republiky; FAČR) or colloquially the Czech Football Association is the governing body of football in the Czech Republic, based in Prague. It organizes the football leagues, Czech Liga and Czech 2. Liga, and the Czech Republic national football team.

From 1922 to 1993, during the existence of Czechoslovakia, the association was known as the Czechoslovak Football Association (Czech: Československá asociace fotbalová; ČSAF) and controlled the Czechoslovakia national football team. After the partition of Czechoslovakia the association took the name Bohemian-Moravian Football Association (Českomoravský fotbalový svaz; ČMFS).
