The Football Association of Norway (NFF) (men's and women's national teams, as well as the Norwegian Premier League. The current president of NFF is Yngve Hallén. By 1 January 2004, there were 1,814 clubs organized in Norway and 373,532 registered players.

The NFF joined FIFA in 1908, and UEFA in 1954.

The NFF was part of an unsuccessful joint bid with the SvFF, the DBU and the SPL/FBF to host the UEFA Euro 2008 championship. The SvFF invited the NFF to join them in bidding for the UEFA Euro 2016 championship. The NFF and Norwegian politicians expressed support for such a proposal,[1] but Euro 2016 was eventually awarded to France.
