Glasgow City FC were formed in 1998 by Laura Montgomery and Carol Anne Stewart and are based at Petershill Park, 30 Adamswell Street in Glasgow. They play in orange and black.[1]

City completed a domestic clean sweep in 2012, winning ever domestic game that season on the way to claiming the treble.[2] They completed a second consecutive domestic treble in 2013,[3] stretching their undefeated league record to 111 matches.[4] It was reported Glasgow City had held talks with the FA WSL in February 2013 about a possible move to an extended top flight in England. City cited football was not moving forward quickly enough in Scotland for women to match their amibition.[5] The FA shut the door on any potential move.[6] City general manager Laura Montgomery later reiterated the club's desire to play in the FA WSL.[7]

During the 2014 season, Glasgow City suffered a first league defeat in over six years[8] but still secured an eighth successive SWPL title.[9] and third successive treble.[10] City became the first Scottish team to reach the UEFA Women's Champions League quarter-finals in November 2014, after an astonishing 5-4 aggregate victory.[11] After suffering a 2-1 first leg defeat at FC Zurich,[12] City found themselves 1-0 down at half time with their keeper substituted due a suspected broken collar bone in the return leg. Despite City replying with two early second half goals, Zurich equalized. An 81st minute Jo Love strike leveled the tie but with City still heading out of the competition on away goals, Suzanne Lappin powered home a header a few minutes from time to send them through.[11]

European history[edit]

Glasgow City has participated in several seasons of UEFA competitions; reaching the second qualifying round of the Women's Cup (last 16) in the 2008–09 season. In the 2011–12 UEFA Women's Champions League they won their qualifying group and moved on to the round of 32. They then defeated Icelandic team Valur to become the first Scottish side to reach the round of 16 of the Champions League.[18] The Round of 16 ended in "humiliating" fashion for Glasgow City, where against German champions Turbine Potsdam, they lost the tie 17–0 on aggregate.[19] The 10–0 first leg defeat in Potsdam being the only time any team in the knockout stages of the champions league have been beaten by double figures. In 2013–14 they reached the round of 16 again losing 2–6 against Arsenal on aggregate.

In 2014 they became the first Scottish team to advance to the quarterfinals.[20]
