New Zealand Football (formerly New Zealand Soccer) is the governing body for the sport of association football in New Zealandmarker. It was founded in 1891, and became officially affiliated with FIFAmarker in 1948. New Zealand was a founding member of the Oceania Football Confederation.

NZF oversees the seven New Zealand Football Federations, as well as the New Zealand national football team (nicknamed the "All Whites"), the national junior and women's teams (nicknamed the "Football Ferns"), the men's and women's National League (the men's league is known as the New Zealand Football Championship), and a number of tournaments, including the Chatham Cup. The New Zealand Football Championship is played in the New Zealand summer between eight teams. A New Zealand team, Wellington Phoenix FC, play in the Australian A-League, also played in the summer.

In May 2007, the organisation was renamed New Zealand Football (NZF), replacing the word "soccer" with "football" in line with the more common usage in the rest of the world.

In September 2007, the female football team changed their name from "SWANZ" to "Football Ferns". The change also occurred to the female under-20 to the "Junior Football Ferns" and the under-17 to the "Young Football Ferns"
