Football Federation Northern Territory is the state governing body for soccer in the Northern Territory, Australia. It is affiliated with Football Federation Australia, the national governing body. The Territory is also separated into three zones - Northern, Central and FICA (Southern) - which have their own zone councils which administer leagues locally running their own league and cup competitions.

There is currently no overall champion - the regional winners in 2016 were Hellenic Athletic Club (Northern Zone) and Celtic (FICA).

The federation conducts the territory-wide Sport Minister's Cup, which doubles as qualification for the national FFA Cup.
