The Freedom Front Plus (FF+; Afrikaans: Vryheidsfront Plus, VF+) is a South African political party that aims to protect Afrikaner interests. The leader is Dr. Pieter Mulder.

The Freedom Front was founded on 1 March 1994 by parts of the Afrikaner right under Constand Viljoen. On 4 March 1994 Viljoen registered the Freedom Front with the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) to take part in the April 1994 general elections. (This date has also been given as 7 March.) On 12 March 1994 Viljoen handed in a list of candidates for the FF to the IEC, confirming that his party would take part in the elections - one day after he mobilised some 1500 white militiamen for Bophuthatswana in order to assist the homeland's ruler Lucas Mangope who was fearing loss of control over his "state" after announcing that Bophuthatswana would not take part in the general election.
