The Korea Football Association (Korean대한축구협회; Hanja大韓蹴球協會; RRDaehan Chukgu Hyeophoe) is the governing body of football, futsal and beach soccer within South Korea. It sanctions professional, semi-professional and amateur football in South Korea. Founded in 1933, the governing body became affiliated with FIFA twenty years later in 1948, and the Asian Football Confederation in 1954.

History[edit]

In 1921, the first All Joseon Football Tournament was held, and in 1933, the Korea Football Association was organized (following the foundation of Joseon Referees' Association in 1928), which created a foundation to disseminate and develop the sport.[1] Park Seung-bin was the first president of the KFA, charged with the task of promoting and spreading organised football in Korea.[2]

The Korea Football Association was reinstated in 1948, following the establishment of the Republic of Korea. The KFA became a member of FIFA, the international football governing body that same year. It later joined the AFC (Asian Football Confederation) in 1954.

On 23 January 2013, KFA elected Chung Mong-gyu as the new chairman.
