The Football Kenya Federation (abbreviated as Football Kenya or FKF) is the governing body of football in Kenya. It was founded in 2011 and was recognised by FIFA, CAF and CECAFA in 2012, replacing Football Kenya Limited. The FKF organises the Kenyan Premier League, the Kenyan Women's Premier League, FKF Division One and the Kenya national football team. It is headed by Sam Nyamweya.

Replacement of Football Kenya Limited[edit]

On November 2011, Football Kenya Limited (FKL) was disbanded as it wanted to cease being a limited company. The Football Kenya Federation (FKF) replaced FKL, but most of the new executive positions were retained by their former occupants on FKL.[2]
