The history of women’s football...

In England, the very first recorded game of women’s football took place in 1895.

In 1921, the FA banned women’s football from its clubs’ grounds as it had the view that ‘football is quite unsuitable for females and ought not to be encouraged’.

50 years later, the FA Council lifted the ban.

The Women’s FA was formed in 1969 and within three years the first 'Women’s FA Cup Final' and England Women’s international had been played.

Football had become the top participation sport for women and girls in England by 2002 and the profile of women’s football was boosted further by the hosting of major tournaments in 2005 and 2012, with England’s achievement in reaching one European Final and two World Cup quarter finals.
