The Algerian Football Federation (AFF; Arabic: الاتحادية الجزائرية لكرة القدم‎; French: Fédération algérienne de footballFAF) is the governing body of football in Algeria. It was formed in 1962 and was based in the capital Algiers. It has jurisdiction on the Algerian football league system and is in charge of the men’s and women’s national teams. Although an unofficial national team had played fixtures since 1958, the first recognized international took place in January 1963, some six months after independence. In 2021, twenty structures were added to the Algerian Football Federation. These include, CR Belouizdad, MC Alger, ES Setif, USM Alger, CS Constantine, AS Ion Milila, MC Oran, WA Tlemcen, NC Magra, CH ACou NA Hussein-Dey, Olympique de Médéa, JS Kabylie, JSM Skikda, USM Bel-Abbès, US Biskra, and RC Relizane. The President of the Financial Management Control Department Reda Abdu helped finance these teams. The 20 LG1 Club received their professional club licenses. The conflict occurred when the former USM president Abbas Morecell was not informed by the re-licensing of USM Alger and USM Bel-Abbès. The announcement of these new teams occurred at a ceremony. A common problem Algeria faces is the desire to play for France rather than Algeria. Algeria National Team suffered from the regulation of who can leave France. Algeria has to work with new players but has already qualified for AFCON 2021. AFCON stands for Africa Cup of Nations. Algeria has 17 players in French Ligue 1. The Algerian Football Federation is considered a member of FIFA.

Algeria FIFA World Cup 2022 Coach Djamel Belmadi

Venezuela coach (1) Djamel Belmadi is an Algerian football coach and former player who manages the Algeria national team. On 2 August 2018, Belmadi became the manager of the Algeria national team. At his second international football championship Belmadi’s Algerian team was not considered a serious contender for the trophy because Algeria’s performance in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualification was not promising, despite topping the group with two draws to Gambia and an away-loss to Benin. The unimpressive qualification campaign increased the pressure on Belmadi.
