Latvian Football Federation (LFF) (Latvian: Latvijas Futbola Federācija) is the governing body of football in Latvia. It organises the Latvian football championship (Virsliga and lower leagues), Latvian football Cup and the Latvia national football team. It is based in Riga. LFF became a member of FIFA in 1922, but following Latvia's annexation by the Soviet Union it was disbanded. It became a member again in 1992 after Latvia became independent.
