The Association runs the national football team and the Palau Soccer League, as well as the Palau Youth Soccer League.


The Palau Football Association (PFA) was incorporated on May 28, 2002 under the laws of the Republic of Palau as a non-profit corporation. It is one of 14 federations of the Palau National Olympic Committee (PNOC). There is a small volunteer board that is primarily responsible to conduct all the activities of the association along with a handful of volunteer parent/coaches. (From the PFA website)

Regional affiliationEdit

After its creation the PFA was listed as an associate member of the OFC.[1] Subsequently this status was lost and has not been regained as of 2021.

In 2009 the PFA requested to become a quasi-member of the East Asia Football Federation.[2] As of 2013, no further progress has been made.[3]
