CONIFA (The CONfederation of Independent Football Associations) is a federation of football associations established in 2013. It is made up of teams that represent nations, dependencies, unrecognized states, minorities, stateless peoples, regions and micronations not affiliated to FIFA. ConIFA organizes the "ConIFA World Football Cup", the first of which took place in 2014 in Östersund, Sweden. The first ConIFA European Football Cup will be held in June 2015 and will be hosted by Ellan Vannin.

Members

Just a few months after becoming a member of ConIFA, the Quebec team affiliated with the Fédération de soccer du Québec, with the intention that the FSQ eventually apply for membership of CONCACAF. To this end, it was announced that the team will only play internationals against full national teams that are members of either CONCACAF or FIFA, and will no longer participate in Non-FIFA Football.[2]
