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.
In February 2013, it was revealed that the club had held talks with the FA WSL, the top tier of English women's football, with a view to potentially joining the league. This move has met with opposition however, from the Football Association.
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. 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. 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.
