The Fédération Haïtienne de Football (FHF) is the governing body of association football in Haiti. The FHF is responsible for overseeing all aspects of the game of football in Haiti, both professional and amateur. A member of CONCACAF since 1961, FHF is in charge of football in Haiti and all lower categories. The principal sporting field is the Sylvio Cator stadium in Port-au-Prince.


2010 earthquake

The federation, which had struggled financially for years, lost all but two of its more than 30 officials during the 2010 earthquake.[3] Also because of the earthquake, the national stadium's field, as well as many other stadiums, were converted to used as housing for survivors and refugees in makeshift tents.[3][4] Due to the financial and personal losses of the federation, large financial sums were donated by FIFA and globally–high-ranking individuals within the sport, as well as a $3 million fund for rebuilding infrastructure that had been created by FIFA.[3]
