Football Federation of Babbage
The Football Federation of Babbage (FFB) is the governing authority for professional association football (soccer) in The Babbage Islands. FFB oversee 104 professional clubs organised at four levels of competition. The Federation also organises the annual Islands Cup, and selects national teams for open and under-21 international competitions.
The FFB Premier League began as a six-team league, the All-Babbage Football Association. The founding clubs were Charleston FC, Dover City, Far Point Islanders, Gernsback United, Parisian, and Southland FC. It had 12 teams for many years, expanded to 16 entering its 30th season, expanded again to 18 beginning in season 39, and contracted to 16 as regional leagues began in season 43.
A system of promotion and relegation with the FFB Championship Series (formerly the National League) began with season 14. This system, modified on numerous occasions, extended through the 72-team professional structure of FFB. Beginning with season 43, relegations were limited to every third season and affected three clubs, placed by FFB management back into regional leagues.
The final season of the FFB Premier League was season 48, after increased tension between clubs of differing strength and financial position reached a breaking point. At the height of the controversy general secretary Cathy Trillium was both sacked and reinstated. The eventual solution was the creation of the quasi-independent Futbala Ĉampionado de Babaĝoj (FĈB) as a new first-division league without promotion-relegation structures. Maxwell Holland of Zarahemla All-Sport was selected as its commissioner, and articles drawn up establishing a more limited role for FFB with the affairs of the new circuit.
Invitations to the FĈB proved controversial, but eventually the standard was set by inviting all two-time or greater champions of the Premier League, followed by two hotly-debated invitations to represent unserved media markets. Southland FC, a founding ABFA club and past champion, hails from the nation's largest city of Wye which otherwise would have no club. And UMFK, a club with only one prior season in the premiership, was tagged over fellow non-champions Fylkir, Cardston FC, and Xianggang FK to represent the island of Gibson. UMFK had won three regional league titles and an Islands Cup in the preceding four seasons. The Wye controversy would be resolved two seasons later with the acquisition of Southland FC by Wye Celtic. The new entity, Celtic-Southland, continues in the FĈB.
After the 53rd season two more clubs were advanced to the FĈB and ten clubs were added to regional leagues to bring all to 16 teams. Also, three small developmental leagues have been organised as a new lower tier of competition including the first FFB presence in Ruadha.

Other professional series
FFB also oversee professional series below the first division.
Old Style: Championship and Numbered Series
The Championship Series began as the Babbage National Football League with six teams. Two of the six teams immediately jumped ship the next season to join the All-Babbage Football Association (now the Premier League), but the league survived adding one team that year and two teams the next.
As the FFB began to take shape, the league shortened its name to National League and expanded to 12 teams for Premier League season 14. At that time the first promotion and relegation agreements were implemented. The Championship Series name was adopted when the Second and Third Series were formed. The Series expanded to 16 teams for season 17, contracted to 12 teams for season 23 during the five-series period, returned to 16 teams for season 30, and expanded to 18 for seasons 39-42.
The Second Series and Third Series were both established by the FFB for season 16, based on mergers and acquisitions involving a number of regional and semipro clubs. Both had expanded to 16 teams by season 18 and paralleled the Championship Series size in later seasons.
The Fourth Series existed from seasons 23-29, and there were five series of 12 teams each in those seasons.
New Style: Regional Leagues
FFB general secretary Cathy Trillium introduced a new scheme for teams below the FFB Premier League starting in season 43. All lower series were abolished and replaced by four regional leagues with 14 clubs each. (League sizes have again been stabilized at 14 after the advent of the FĈB through mergers.) The FFB Premier League was reduced to 16 clubs as well. Regional leagues draw almost all their clubs from one or two specific islands, with adjustments made as needed.
Promotion and relegation were also reduced to once every three seasons until the FĈB era began. The combined effect was to increase the importance of local rivalries and reduce the financial stresses on clubs below the top tier.
The four leagues are named for iconic figures of Babbage football. Regional League Ijak is based in Gibson and Tesla, Regional League Nash in Daimler and North Island, Regional League Svoboda in Cayley and Verne, and Regional League Valdemar in South Island.

The Islands Cup has been played shortly after the close of each league season. The first season of the Islands Cup was after season 12, and it ran continuously until after season 47 when there was a three-year gap before its restoration. The 5-0 win by Bloomfield National in Islands Cup II is often credited as the turning point in implementing promotion and relegation between leagues.
The Cup has always followed a single-elimination format. Details have shifted many times according to the number of clubs eligible and other factors. Islands Cups included all recognised clubs until Islands Cup XXXI following season 42, at which time the field was limited to a subset of clubs qualified by league position.
From the second Cup forward there was a rotation of sites for the Cup semifinals and final. These sites included Capital Stadium in Charleston, The Great Dome in Gernsback, Whitecliff Stadium in Dover (from season 30), and Parc de Triomphe in Paris (through season 29).
Beginning in season 43 the rotation was extended to seven sites and to cover the quarterfinals as well. The new sites are The U.F.O. in Cardston (first Islands Cup XXXV), Callahan & Babcock Arena in Bloomfield (XXXVII), Memorial Park in Belgium (XXXIII), and Purple Palace in Windsor (XXXVIII). Ijak-Nash Stadium in Paris will replace Callahan & Babcock Arena some time before they host Islands Cup XLIV.

The senior national team made its international debut in the World Cup 47 cycle, participating in the Baptism of Fire, the World Cup qualifying, and the Cup of Harmony. The FFB have ruled that Olympic teams in both men's and women's football, and any team fielded in a return of the Women's World Cup, are considered full senior teams for the award of caps and record of international goals.
