25 years of
This is our story.
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 have four teams playing at different levels in the British University and Colleges Sports Leagues. Following promotion in 2019, the 1st team play in the BUCS Northern Premier League, travelling across England and Scotland to compete at the highest level. Our Second team compete in the top Scottish 1A division, whilst our 3rd team who, only founded in the 2015/16 season, are currently playing in Division 3A. New for 2019/20 we have a development team training and playing friendlies. We also have a saturday recreational 5-a-side league where some of our competitive players have started off. All train at the exceptional Peffermill training facility in Edinburgh – which boasts 2 3Gs, 8 5-aside astro pitches, numerous high quality grass pitches, changing facilities and modern bar and refreshment area.
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.
We also have 2 futsal teams. The first team was promoted in 2018/19 to the BUCS Northern Premier LEague and the Second Team Plays in the Scottish 1A. in 2016 we became the first Scottish Team to Become British Futsal Champions.
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.
"EUWAFC is honestly the best club I could’ve joined coming to the University. Our head coach, Mike, says it a lot but we really are “3 teams 1 club” as all our teams come together off the pitch. We have socials each week, ranging from flat golf to board game nights, and are always in the sponsor pub, The Pear Tree, together for a chat after a game. The girls are all such genuinely nice people and everyone is always there to talk to if you need them, which provides a great support network for those living away from home for the first time. I think our club boasts a very supportive environment and we are always encouraging each other to better ourselves, by assisting girls through coaching badges and beyond, such as mental health first aid which 2 of our players and 1 coach achieved recently. Celebrating our 25 year anniversary last year, our club continues to go from strength to strength and I hope all our incoming students can also find their home at EUWAFC." - EUWAFC 2018/19 President Katie Macdonald
