The Brazilian Football Confederation (Portuguese: Confederação Brasileira de Futebol or CBF) is the governing body of football in Brazil.

The CBF has its headquarters in Rio de Janeiro.[1] The confederation owns a training center, named Granja Comary, located in Teresópolis.[2]

It was announced on September 29, 2007 that the CBF would launch a women's league and cup competition in October 2007 following pressure from FIFA president Sepp Blatter during the 2007 FIFA Women's World Cup in China.[3][4]
