Latvia women's national football team represent Latvia in international football.

Latvia women's national football team made their international debut in the qualification for the European Championships in 1995, but then withdrew from all qualification until the qualification for the European Championships in 2009. Latvia's record in international qualification games is poor. In their competitive games, Latvia lost their first two games, against Israel and Bosnia and Herzegovina by three goals, before losing by one goal to Armenia. Mini-tournaments after the qualification disaster proved no better for Latvia. Finishing last, in December 2008, Latvia lost 0–3 to Croatia and 0–5 to Turkey. Latvia won its first official match on 5 March 2011 over Lithuania in the 2013 European Championship qualifying's preliminary round with a lone goal by Jūlija Sokolova.[1] However, Latvia lost the other two games against Luxembourg and Macedonia so it didn't go through.
