May 21, 1904, the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) was founded in Paris to oversee international competition among the national associations of Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland.

Headquartered in Zürich, its membership now comprises 211 national associations. Member countries must each also be members of one of the six regional confederations into which the world is divided: Africa, Asia, Europe, North and Central American and the Caribbean, Oceania, and South America.

Although FIFA does not control the rules of football, it is responsible for the organisation of a number of tournaments and their promotion, which generate billions from sponsorship.
