Tamil Eelam FA is the Tamil Eelam Football Association, TEFA. We manage the National Football teams of Tamil Eelam, both the Women’s and Men’s. We compete in non-FIFA competitions hosted by CONIFA and WUFA.
Tamil Eelam is a region in South Asia. It is the historical homeland of the Tamil nation of the island of Ceylon, today known as Sri Lanka. Tamil Eelam is the modern collective name for the Tamil-speaking territories of the precolonial Tamil kingdoms and principalities that existed in the districts of Jaffna, Killinochi, Mullaithivu, Mannar, Vavuniya, Trincomalee, Batticaloa, Amparai and Puttalam in the Northern, Eastern and Western parts of the island, respectively.
Most Eelam Tamils live the north east of Sri Lanka. Many Eelam Tamils have also migrated to Australia, Canada, India and Europe; making it their home (this is where we come in- giving all Eelam Tamils the opportunity to unite and play football together).
There are at least 76 million Tamils who live around the world. The overwhelming majority live in Tamil Nadu, the southern most state of India. Tamil is an official language in Tamil Eelam, Tamil Nadu, Singapore and Sri Lanka.
