Evans, who was instrumental in setting up the Welsh Premier League when it was launched as the League of Wales, passed away on Saturday aged 69.
The FAW yesterday released a statement paying tribute to Evans (pictured), a former teacher from Porth in south Wales who was secretary of the association from 1982 until 1995.
The statement read: "The FAW is sad to announce the passing of former secretary, Alun Evans.
"Porth-born Alun had been in poor health for some time and passed away last night."
"A forthright individual, Alun was instrumental in the formation of the League of Wales and was a strong leader of the FAW policies."
The statement added: "Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this sad time."
