The Karen Football Association

We are excited to announce the formation of this organization for the Karen community around the world. The Karen Football Association (KFA) is based in the United States and is the official governing body of the Karen Women's and Men's National Soccer Teams. KFA aims to develop a program that unites the community’s passion for football with the importance of gender equity. As an organization, and a team, we feel that it is our responsibility to be an influential role model for others; teaching our culture, and society, that women and men will always be on an equal playing field.
Our purpose is: (a) to promote gender equity and education at all levels of the organization, within its teams, development programs, and the community and (b) to support, coordinate, and administer the growth and development of football (soccer) within the Karen community (c) while providing educational and professional opportunities to underserved communities.
The Karen Football Association is a registered 501(c)3 Non Profit Organization based in the state of Minnesota in the United States of America.
