The Argentine Football Association (Spanish: Asociación del Fútbol Argentino, locally: [asosjaˈsjon del ˈfutβol arxenˈtino]) is the governing body of football in Argentina. It organises the Argentine football league, the Argentine Cup and the Argentina national football team. It is based in the city of Buenos Aires. Secondly, it also organizes the amateur leagues for women, children, youth, Futsal, and other local leagues, as well as the national women's team.

HistoryEdit

The Argentine Association Football League (in English) was founded on 21 February 1893 by Alexander Watson Hutton, considered "the father" of Argentine football. The Argentine Association is the oldest in South America and one of the oldest to be formed outside Europe, later renamed Argentine Football Association in 1903, and translated into Asociación Argentina de Football (Argentine Football Association) in 1912.

The parallel Federación Argentina de Football (Argentine Football Federation), founded in 1912, joined the Asociación Argentina de Football, as well as did the 1919 founded Asociacion Amateurs de Football (Amateur Football Association) in 1926.

In 1926 it was again renamed to Asociación Amateur Argentina de Football (Argentine Amateur Football Association), but with the professionalization of the sport in 1931 it was named Asociación de Football Amateur y Profesionales (Amateur and Professional Football Association). The first round of the first professional championship was on May 31 1931.[1] [2]

The Liga Argentina de Football (Argentine Football League), founded in 1931 merged with the Asociación de Football Amateur y Profesionales on November 3, 1934, into what is still today the Asociación de Fútbol Argentino (Argentine Football Association).[1]
