Female Football


With almost three million active female players, football is one of the biggest women’s team sport in England – but there is plenty of room for more.

Women’s and girls’  football across Leicestershire and Rutland ranges from recreational kickabouts and Futsal to competitive 11 a side football with opportunities throughout the football pyramid, for all abilities and ages. We support a number of leagues, clubs and volunteers across the County for women and girls to play the beautiful game, including women’s only recreational football and Futsal, Weetabix Wildcats and 11 a side football
