 On top of the GFF Organizational structure is the GFF Congress whose role is to meet annually to adopt and amend the constitution,elect members of the Executive Committee, approve the budget,admitting and suspending members and making all Executive decisions in accordance with Federation, this is followed by an Executive Committee that consists of one President, three Vice Presidents and two members and their role is to monitor and supervise the Secretariat.
 Under the Executive Committee is the Secretariat of the GFF, whose role is to give correspondence to the Administrative Assistant. The Administrative Assistant then gives instructions to the Affiliates and Associations.
The Associations administers Football through clubs countrywide. These Associations are: Bartica, East Bank, Berbice,Upper Demerara, Essequibo, Georgetown, East Coast, West Bank and Rupununi.                                                                                                   
The Affiliates are also important. They do not administer football through clubs, but rather administer the game in its actuality. These are the Referees, Coaches and Women Associations and then there are the players of the game.
The GFF has to comply with the overall standards set by FIFA and failure to do so can result in suspension.
