★ Brazilian Football Confederation
The Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) is the Brazil's football governing body.
The headquarters is located in Rio de Janeiro.
It organizes all four levels of the national championship, national teams, supports, develops and popularizes football in general.
In 1914, it was founded as Federaço Brasileira de Sports, which was renamed Confederaço Brasileira de Desportos in 1916.
A split from other sports associations occurred on 24 September 1979, which led to the creation of the football confederation as we know it today.
The Brazilian Football Confederation organizes all 4 levels of the national championship for men, the Copa do Brasil, Copa do Nordeste and the Copa Verde.
All regional football federations of individual states are subordinate to the CBF.
The organization manages the national men's and women's teams.
In 2007, representatives of the Brazilian Football Confederation announced the holding of the Brazilian Women's Football Championship under the auspices of the organization.
