The Algerian Football Federation (Arabic: الإتحادية الجزائرية لكرة القدم, French: Fédération algérienne de football) is the governing body of football in Algeria. It was formed in 1962 and was based in the capital Algiers. It has jurisdiction on the Algerian football league system and is in charge of the men's and women's national teams. Although an unofficial national team had played fixtures since 1958, the first recognized international took place in January 1963, some six months after independence.
