The Micronational Football Association, commonly known by the acronym MFA, is an international football body of association football for micronations with futsal and beach soccer having never been discussed as the responsibility of the MFA or not. Its headquarters are located in Barnabaristius, Dian, and its current president is Barnaby Hands, who took the presidency on September 8, 2011, after founder Joe Foxon stood down from the position. The MFA is responsible for the organisation and governance of football's major micronational tournaments, most notably the MFA World Cup, the first edition of which was scheduled to be held in 2013 in Rukora. This later moved to Senya before it was cancelled, the MFA World Cup will now be held in 2015 in London, United Kingdom.

History

The national football team of Sealand, who joined the NF-Board in December 2003.
Micronational football had always lacked a governing body. Throughout the 1980's Vikesland and Molossia both expressed interest in playing football, although with the disestablishment of the North American Soccer League (NASL) in the mid-1980's, both nations abandoned plans. Sealand formed a football team in 2003, and joined the NF-Board in December 2003. The Micras sector founded the FMF in 2006, but this organisation only governs virtual fixtures between Micrasian nations. In 2009, the MFA was founded by Joe Foxon.
The organisation grew on the Wikia, especially in 2009, when the host nation was announced for the 2013 World Cup. In 2010, the organisation expelled several nations, notably Tiana and Libertaria for inactivity, and in 2011 after the dissolution of Prometheus, membership fell to 8. However, Fiharaya and Pambia joined in the spring of 2011, and in the summer the Dale Empire (now Dale Republic) joined, meaning membership rose to 11.
On September 10, 2011, Joe Foxon was officially replaced as President of the MFA by Barnaby Hands, with Foxon siting personal reason for his unexpected departure. Hands quickly rolled out his first six-point annual plan, which would see the introduction of the VMFA and it's various competitions.
