The Brazilian Sports Confederation, also known by the acronym CBD, was the main sports confederation of Brazil, competent in the matter of tennis, athletics, swimming, water polo, handball, football, and any sporting activity not belonging to a self-standing institution. Football played a prominent role since the statute stated that it constituted "the basic and essential sport of the Confederação Brasileira de Desportos". The CBD was born to overcome the contrasts between the Federação Brasileira de Futebol (FBF) and the Federação Brasileira de Sports (FBS), the two bodies that competed for hegemony in the organization of football in the country, an expression of the State of São Paulo and State of Rio de Janeiro football movement respectively. 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 CONMEBOL. On 20 May 1923, it obtained affiliation to the FIFA. The Confederation also represented most of the Brazilian states in the sports sector.
