UEFA is the governing body of European football and is responsible for high-profile competitions; some involving national teams, such as the prestigious European Championship with the next tournament taking place in Austria and Switzerland in 2008.
UEFA's premier club competitions are the European Champions League and the UEFA Cup, in which English clubs aspire to compete on a yearly basis. The FA and 50 other national associations of UEFA are all affiliated to the world's governing body, FIFA.
The scope of FIFA's roles and duties has vastly expanded in recent years, and the body is supported in its task of organising, promoting and developing football by the six confederations across the globe. The AFC in Asia, CAF in Africa, CONCACAF in North and Central America and the Caribbean, CONMEBOL in South America, the OFC in Oceania and UEFA comprise 204 member associations in total.
FIFA, formed in 1904, now one of the world's biggest sporting organisations, strives to safeguard the image of the game and is primarily responsible for the Laws of the Game, which are based upon the rules first ratified in by the International Football Association Board (IFAB) in 1886.
FIFA also boasts the World Cup which is held every four years.Disciplinary issues arising from matches played under the auspices of either UEFA or FIFA should be directed to the appropriate body. This applies even when English Clubs are involved.
