The 2014 SAFF Women's Championship was an association football tournament for women's national teams organised by the South Asian Football Federation (SAFF). It was the third edition of the tournament since the first one in 2010. The competition was contested by the eight SAFF members. India are the reigning champions.

The tournament was hosted in Pakistan from 11 to 21 November 2014.[1]

In the final India beat Nepal for the third time and remains the only nation to lift the title.[2] Indian player Ng Bala Devi won the top-scorer award averaging over three goals per match.

Host selection[edit]

On 10 September 2013, SAFF executive committee decided that 3rd SAFF Women's championship will be held in Pakistan.[3]

Venue[edit]

Jinnah Sports Stadium in Islamabad hosted all matches.[4] Although entry to all games was free there were very few local spectators.[5] After a suicide attack one week before start, there were some security concerns but the tournament was considered safe by the Pakistan Football Federation.[6]

Some matches were televised.[7]
