In the heart of Barnsley and its vibrant surroundings, Barnsley Women’s Football Club stands as a beacon of inspiration and opportunity for women and girls who share a passion for the beautiful game. More than just a football club, it’s a community, a movement, and a driving force behind the growth of women’s football in the region.

Our First Team proudly competes in the FA Women’s National League Division 1 North, showcasing the talent and determination of our players to the wider football world. Their recent move to Olympic Legacy Park in Sheffield marks a new era for the club, providing a world-class home ground that matches their ambition and aspirations.

But our commitment to women’s football extends far beyond the First Team. Our Junior Teams, brimming with young, enthusiastic players, take to the pitch every week in the Sheffield & Hallamshire Women & Girls League. Nurturing their skills, fostering their love for the sport, and instilling confidence in their abilities are the cornerstones of our junior development program.

At Barnsley Women’s Football Club, we believe that football is more than just a game; it’s a powerful tool for empowerment, a platform for self-expression, and a pathway to personal growth. We strive to create an environment where women and girls feel welcome, valued, and encouraged to pursue their football dreams, regardless of their background or experience.
