Histoy of Burundi Premier League

Football was introduced in Burundi in 1936, during the colonial era; two separate federations were founded, the F.E.F.A.R.U. (Fédération Européenne de Football Amateur du Rwanda-Urundi) for European players and the F.I.F.U. (Fédération Indigene de Football d’Usumbura) for local ones. In 1948, these were united into the Burundian Football Federation (B.F.F.), and mixed competitions were held; interracial teams were created in 1954.
