The Brazilian Football Confederation (Portuguese: Confederação Brasileira de Futebol; CBF) is the governing body of football in Brazil. It was founded in 1914 as Federação Brasileira de Sports [pt]), and renamed to Confederação Brasileira de Desportos in 1916. The football confederation, as known today, forked in September 1979 by the dismemberment of other sports associations. Between 1914 and 1979 it was the governing body, or at least the international reference, for other olympic sports, such as tennis (until the foundation of CBT in 1955) , athletics (until 1977 when was founded CBAt), Swimming, Waterpolo, Handball (until 1979).

The CBF has its headquarters in Rio de Janeiro.[2] The confederation owns a training center, named Granja Comary, located in Teresópolis.[3]

It was announced on 29 September 2007 that the CBF would launch a women's league and cup competition in October 2007 following pressure from FIFA president Sepp Blatter during the 2007 FIFA Women's World Cup in China.[4][5]
