The Gozo Football Association (GFA) is the body that co-ordinates and organises football on the island of Gozo, Malta. Formed in 1936, it organises the Gozo Football League, which is split into two divisions, the First Division and the Second Division. It also organises the G.F.A. Cup, the Independence Cup, the Freedom Day Cup, the BOV Super Cup, the Second Division Knock-Out, the Second Division Challenge Cup, the Under-21s League, Under-18 League, and the Under-15s. It also organises the Gozo national football team.

The GFA also ran the Gozo FC which from season 2008–09 was playing in the Maltese Second Division after winning the Maltese Third Division Section B; from 16 matches they recorded 15 wins and a draw. As of the 2017–18 season, there are 14 Gozitan clubs competing in both divisions and the Gozo Youth FA affiliated with the association which itself is a member association of the Malta Football Association.

The GFA's main premises are located at the Gozo Stadium, previously known as the Silver Jubilee Ground, situated at Mġarr Road in Xewkija. The Gozo FA is not a member of the UEFA or FIFA but is a provisional member of the NF-Board.
