The Philippine Football Federation (PFF) is the governing body of football in the Philippines.

The football body's origins dates back to 1907 when it was established as the Philippine Amateur Football Association (PAFA). It was among the twelve founding Asian football associations of the Asian Football Confederation. In 1961, stakeholders of Philippine football officially organized themselves to establish the Philippine Football Association (PFA) which was later reorganized as the Philippine Football Federation in 1982.[1]

In 2002, the PFF inaugurated its first regional center in Barotac Nuevo, Iloilo.[2]
