The Croatia women's national football team represents the Republic of Croatia in international football. The team is managed by the Croatian Football Federation, the governing body for football in the country.

Unlike the men's, the women's team is lack of funding, thus Croatia, since independence, has been regarded as one of the weakest team in Europe, and often lost to their rival Serbia in majority matches.
