Description:
The Football Association of Finland (, SPL; , FBF) is the governing body of football in Finland. It was founded in 1907, and was also the governing body of bandy in Finland until the bandy association, Suomen Jääpalloliitto, was founded in 1972.

The SPL organises the men's and women's national football teams, and the second and third tiers of national football.
