The Brazilian Football Confederation (Portuguese: Confederação Brasileira de Futebol; CBF) is the governing body of football in Brazil. It was founded on 8 June 1914 as Federação Brasileira de Sports [pt]), and renamed to Confederação Brasileira de Desportos in 1916. The football confederation, as known today, separated from other sports associations on 24 September 1979. Between 1914 and 1979 it was the governing body, or at least the international reference,[clarification needed] 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). It currently has the most wins on FIFA world cups, with a total of 5 wins.

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]
