The Republic of Ireland women's national football team, selects players from both the 350 Women's Football Association of Ireland (WFAI) teams, in 21 affiliate leagues throughout the nation, and the international women's football community. The WFAI was founded in 1973. It provided player and squad development which, in 1990, brought the FAI to finally recognize and support women's football. The squad beat Romania, Croatia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, and Malta in the 2004 "second division" UEFA Women's Championship and was promoted to the FIFA first division (teams that compete for direct qualification to the FIFA Women's World Cup). The Women's Team has also competed in recent versions of the Algarve Cup. The Women's team play home internationals at Richmond Park in Dublin, home ground of St Patrick's Athletic.
