FIDAF is an acronym for Federation of International Development Agencies Football. It is a non-profit oriented initiative intended to foster camaraderie amongst International Development Agencies (IDAs) and also to provide a forum for interaction both within themselves (the IDAs) and with their clients, prospective clients, and support organizations.

The tournament also provides a forum for participating organizations to showcase their objectives.
