For those not familiar CONIFA - the Confederation of Independent Football Associations - is the the soccer federation for all associations outside of FIFA. Founded in 2013 and headquartered in Sweden, CONIFA is “a global acting non-profit organization that supports representatives of international football teams from nations, de-facto nations, regions, minority peoples and sports isolated territories.” The 2018 CONIFA World Cup will be the 3rd such event in the organization’s history.
