"Come and join us!"

Founded on 2003, in Liège, Belgium, the N.F.-Board is a football association made up of teams that represent nations, dependencies, unrecognized states, minorities, stateless peoples, regions and micro nations not affiliated to FIFA.


We seek to be a complementary alternative to FIFA, stating a belief in the right to play competitive football. Therefore, Football Associations from all over the world are more than welcome to join us. 

Our motto is to say “If a world that plays is beautiful, then it is even more beautiful if everyone plays".

The VIVA World Cup TM is an international football tournament open to non- FIFA-affiliated teams. With five successful editions behind us (2006, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2012) the VIVA World Cup TM brings a message of peace through a ball, free from politics and religion.


This tournament represents an opportunity to return to the spirit of the game competing for the "Nelson Mandela Trophy"A celebration of peoples, nations and cultures for the sole pleasure of playing.
