The establishment of the CBD led to the extinction of the two state entities on 21 June 1916, and in the same year, there was affiliation to the South American Football Confederation. On 20 May 1923, it obtained affiliation to the FIFA. The Confederation also represented most of the Brazilian states in the sports sector. Today dissolved, in terms of football, its attributions and functions have been conferred on the Confederação Brasileira de Futebol (CBF), built in 1979.
