Liechtenstein Football Association

The Liechtenstein Football Association (LFV) (German: Liechtensteiner Fussballverband) is the governing body of football in Liechtenstein.[1] It was established on 28 April 1934,[2] and became affiliated to UEFA on 22 May 1974.[3][4] The association organizes the Liechtenstein national football team and the Liechtenstein Football Cup.[5] Because Liechtenstein has fewer than 8 (only 7 not counting reserves) active teams, it is the only UEFA member without its own national league.[6][7] This means the Liechtensteiner teams play in the Swiss Football League system.[8] The LFV is based in Schaan.[9]
