The Porto Football Association (Associação de Futebol do Porto, abrv. AF Porto) is the district governing body for the all football competitions in the Portuguese district of Porto. It is also the regulator of the clubs registered in the district.
Below the Campeonato Nacional de Seniores (Portuguese third level) the competitions are organised at a district level (known in Portuguese as Distritais) with each District Association organising its competitions according to geographical and other factors. AF Porto runs a league competition with four divisions, at the fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh levels of the Portuguese football league system and a cup competition known as Taça AF Porto (since 2013–14).
