The Football Association of Bosnia and Herzegovina is the governing body of football in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The Bosnian football association was founded as the sub-association of Yugoslavia in 1920. In 1992 the association was re-founded as the football association of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

In May 2002 the Football Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina was unified with the Football Association of Republika Srpska and the Football Federation of Herzeg-Bosnia. In April 2011 it changed its name from Football Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina to Football Association of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Due to the difficult political situation in Bosnia-Herzegowina the Association had since they became member of the FIFA in 1996 three presidents. One was a Bosniak, one a Croat and one a Serb. This was tolereted by the FIFA till April 2011. Then Bosnia- Herzegowina was banned from all competitions because this was against FIFA-laws. On December 13, 2012 Elvedin Begić was elected as the new first single president of the BiH football organization .[1]
