On 24 April 1932 the I.V.C.B. (Interdiocesane Voetbal-Competitie-Bond) was formed to organise the competitions above the diocese level (but not to represent the clubs, who remained members of the R.K.F.) from the 1932/33 season on, a task hitherto assigned to the Technische Sectie of the R.K.F.
During the entire interbellum these federations organised an annual competition for the national title between the champions from the highest regional leagues (with the precise set-up undergoing many changes over the years).
After the German invasion in 1940, the R.K.F. (as all other football federations hitherto independent of the K.N.V.B., such as the socialist N.A.S.B. (Nederlandsche Arbeiders-Sportbond) and the protestant C.N.V.B.) was dissolved (as was the I.V.C.B.); its member clubs were forced to join (one of the regional member federations of) the N.V.B. (which lost its royal first initial during the war).
