The Northern Mariana Islands Football Association is the governing body of football in the Northern Mariana Islands. It was founded in 2005 by US-Attorney Peter Coleman.[1] The Association received full membership into the East Asian Football Federation in 2008.[2][3] The association was admitted as a quasi-member of the Asian Football Confederation in July 2009.[4]

The association runs the M*League, the top level of domestic competition within the commonwealth. It operates men's, women's and youth national football teams which play in the East Asian Football Federation championships.
