The EFA thereafter affiliated to the Federation of International Football Associations (FIFA) and the Confederation of African Football (CAF) in 1978. The association eventually affiliated to the Council of Southern African Football Associations (COSAFA) in 1983 where Eswatini was one of the founding members.

In 2000, under the Presidency of Mr Adam Mthethwa, the EFA hired a full-time Chief Executive Officer/ General Secretary to head the Secretariat of the association.
