Welcome to Edinburgh University Women's Association Football Club

We are currently preparing for the upcoming 2023/24 season so please be patient waiting for news on welcome week and trials!

In the meanwhile, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to email or DM us on Instagram @ EUWAFC and one of our committee members will get back to you as soon as we can


EUWAFC is one of the fastest growing clubs at the University of Edinburgh, with opportunities for female students to play football in a competitive and social environment.

We are currently home to 4 competitive football teams including a Saturday Recreational programme which is the biggest one in Scotland!

All teams currently compete in the Scottish leagues, with the 1st and 2nd team both in Scottish 1A and the 3rd and 4th team competing in 2A.

The recreational programme is hosted every Saturday morning at Peffermill playing fields on 5-a-side pitches. The programme has seen its most successful year yet with record high numbers and a historical first 11-a-side friendly with Glasgow University in which the 'Rec' team won 9-1 early in 2023. 

In addition to our BUCS and recreational football, we formed a partnership with Boroughmuir Thistle FC, the largest women's and girls' football club in Scotland, in 2021. The partnership provides a route for University students to play SWPL2 football which is the second highest level of women's football in Scotland. Edinburgh Uni Thistle is another team formed through the partnership which allows players to compete throughout the whole year in SWFL East.

Players also benefit from the guidance of highly qualified coaches and an exciting social scene to supplement your enjoyment and development on the field of play.

Our club is one of the fastest growing and most successful clubs in Scotland and this was underlined in 2016 when we were nominated by Scottish Student Sport for Sports Club of the Year. This put our club among the top 3 university sports clubs in the whole of Scotland. In 2018/19 we were the Most Represented University at Scottish Student Sport Football with 5 players in the Squad.
