Football was possibly founded in the late 19th century with the introduction of British sailors, Chileans, Peruvians and Argentines. Nevertheless, the wake of the Pacific War slowed the progress of Bolivian football, and it was not until the 20th century that sport became popular.
The FBF operates several national teams, including men's, women's and youth teams (Olympia, U-20, U-17).

Bolivia participated in a 1999 FIFA Confederations Cup in Mexico, the fourth FIFA tournament it participated in, scoring two goals.

In 1930, Bolivia was one of the teams invited to Uruguay for the inaugural edition of the World Cup. Bolivia, under contract at the 1930 World Cup in Group 2, lost both games 4-0, first against Yugoslavia at Estadio Parque Central and then against Brazil at Estadio Centenario. The game against the Yugoslavs was for Bolivia the last game against non-South American opponents, until 1972, they met again on Yugoslavia.
