List of Women's American Football Teams in Europe

 

20 countries in Europe are home to over 200 women’s American football teams. This fact is astounding because in the United States – the birthplace of American football – women rarely, if ever play. However, in Europe, the situation is clearly quite different.

In tribute to such a prevalence of women in the sport, The Growth of a Game has compiled a complete list of women’s American Football teams in Europe. This is the first time that such a body of research has ever been compiled.

Below you will find an alphabetized list of every country in Europe where at least one women’s American football team exists. Under each of these headings, you will find an alphabetized list of the women’s American football teams in that respective country. This list only includes only clubs that have at least one adult women’s tackle team. We’ve also provided links to every team’s website. Where we were unable to locate the website for a team, we’ve provided links to the team’s respective Facebook page. It is important to note than some of the women’s teams are not featured on their club’s website, which is why some of the links appear to lead to men’s teams. To view the complete list of men’s teams, click here.

This list is also ever-expanding and evolving, with missing information to be provided by The Growth of a Game community and staff as time goes on. Additions, edits, and improvements are welcomed in the comments section below. This list will be updated regularly.

In closing, we would like to give special thanks to the following individuals. We would not have been able to compile this list nearly as completely or as effectively without their help:

Céline Martin – France
Jo Kilby – England
Sari Kuosmanen – Finland

The Growth of a Game is proud to present the first ever comprehensive list of women’s American Football teams in Europe.

Comment Rules: We're all here for the same reason, which means we all have the same goal to help grow the game of American football. Focus on what brings us together instead of what makes us different. Anything overtly negative will just be deleted. Be supportive, not critical. Be helpful, not hurtful. That's what a real community does.

    It’s also worth pointing out that in addition to women’s teams there are women playing on mostly men’s team in the UK. We played a team this year who had a woman on it and I’m sure that she isn’t the only one 🙂

  • Very true, @Sean_Michael_UK:disqus! We’ve come across several men’s teams that had one or more women on their squads, and it’s even more prevalent to see them on youth teams. Thanks for mentioning this.

    You missed some Ladies in Italy, you better don’t.
    http://forum.endzone.it/viewtopic.php?t=17100
    “One team” for example.

    (below the lines and HOW MANY teams it would be nice to count, the QUALITY and the WHY there are more or more quality of the game in some places etc – spare time for people – scandinavia beats all, how much the two gender work together, how much contagious the “men and cheerleading” of a country made this sport for the whole community, sport structures and space, national federation help …).
    How many – quality – why (…) interlaced together would give a much better, if not understanding, value to this quest…

    When I was studing at Washington University in da Lou for a semester (exchange) we also talked about, in the Sport Management course, the future of Sports with mix of players. It must be possible but it is all in the mind (the gamechallenge) that will make it become possible. = people mentality, understanding, culture, to play mixed leagues sports …

    There are woman (you just need to study antropology, archeology, phorensic etc, that are just very similar and often stronger than men) = they can compete.
    It’s a matter of POPULATION GENE – there are bones I’ve heard and seen that are just bigger or like men bones, so are the ligaments and tendons signs on them …
    We just have to open the mind.

    Beside the fact that they have to host life… and that’s another thing. But we must too (in a smaller way). Let’s cut it down to this …
    Mixed leagues in future will be or might be a reality.

    remember that there is not just M and F but also other genders, respect.
    Future is also in the hands of biology. In the age of Singularity (we are in) and in which we have “restarted” the history clock (we are the creators of life, or we think we are, by being actually able to manipulate anything, even genes, well, then future will be like I said above, and more easily than you might think we will get to there).

    See ya.

  • Thanks for your message @horsedancingwithcrow:disqus. Which teams did we miss?

  • horsedancingwithcrow

    Ciao, you miss One Team for example, you can see from the list I give you just comparing the difference. If you mentioned 10, let’s say, there are at least 50% more now playing. The CIFAF tournament is now on. Have a look. Italian is italian 😉 hiihiihii

  • Jascha LaBeouf

    Hi, thanks for that list, it’s great to see how many women play football all over the continent. But there are even more teams: Germany’s Solingen Paladins and Wuppertal Greyhounds are playing in the second division this year. And Sauerland Mustangs are building up a women’s team, too. Would love to see them in the list.

  • Elena Lipilina
