The NOFV was formed on 20 November 1990 in Leipzig to take the place of the Deutscher Fußball-Verband der DDR, the DFV which was dissolved immediately before the formation of the new association at the same location.[2] The DFV had been the football association of East Germany which itself had ceased to exist after the German reunification on 3 October 1990.

The NOFV is in turn subdivided into the Berlin Football Association, Brandenburg Football Association, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern Football Association, Saxony Football Association, Saxony-Anhalt Football Association and the Thuringia Football Association.[1]

In 2017, the NOFV had 651,227 members, 4,333 member clubs and 22,061 teams playing in its league system.[3]
