Nepean Football Association (NFA) is the governing body of amateur football across the Penrith, Hawkesbury and Blue Mountains areas of western Sydney. Clubs are located in four council areas, City of Penrith, City of Blue Mountains, City of Hawkesbury and Wollondilly Shire. Its administrative offices are located in Penrith.
Nepean Junior Soccer Association was formed 9 November 1961 with the first competitions commencing in 1962. They were later to be known as Nepean District Soccer Association, then Nepean District Soccer Football Association before settling on Nepean Football Association (2014) as the word football steadily replaces soccer across Australia.
