The Football Federation of Macedonia (FFM; Macedonian: Фудбалска Федерација на Македонија, ФФМ) or Football Federation of North Macedonia is the governing body of football in North Macedonia based in Skopje.


FFM was officially formed as part of the Football Association of Yugoslavia after the establishment of then SR Macedonia, a constituent state of SFR Yugoslavia, following World War II, on 14 August 1949 in Skopje. The first football department was established as a part of the sports' association of the city of Skopje, while the football section was separated on 16 August 1948. From 1949 to 2002, it was called the Football Association of Macedonia (Macedonian: Фудбалски Сојуз на Македонија / Fudbalski Sojuz na Makedonija or ФСМ/FSM). In 1994, FFM became a member of FIFA and UEFA. The first ever president was Ljubisav Ivanov - Dzingo. Andon Dončevski was appointed by FFM as the first ever coach of the North Macedonia national team.
