The have won the most Premier League titles in Scotland, the most Scottish Cups since 2000.
City completed a domestic clean sweep in 2012, winning every domestic game that season on the way to claiming the treble. They completed a second consecutive domestic treble in 2013, stretching their undefeated league record to 111 matches. It was reported Glasgow City had held talks with the FA WSL in February 2013 about a possible move to an extended top flight in England. City cited football was not moving forward quickly enough in Scotland for women to match their amibition. The FA shut the door on any potential move. City general manager Laura Montgomery later reiterated the club's desire to play in the FA WSL.
During the 2014 season, Glasgow City suffered a first league defeat in over six years, but still secured an eighth successive SWPL title and third successive treble. After a superb 5–4 aggregate win against FC Zurich, City became the first Scottish team to reach the UEFA Women's Champions League quarter-finals in November 2014. After a 2–1 first leg defeat at FC Zurich, City were 1–0 down at half time, with their keeper substituted due a suspected broken collar bone, in the second leg. Despite City replying with two early second half goals, Zurich made it 2–2. An 81st minute Jo Love strike leveled the tie, but with City heading out of the competition on away goals, Suzanne Lappin powered home a header a few minutes from time to send them through. In the quarter-finals, Paris Saint-Germain proved too strong for City, with a 7–0 aggregate victory.
City were seeded for the UEFA Women's Champions League in 2015–16, as they entered straight in to the round of 32, both for the very first time. As the eighth seeds, the team will face Chelsea.
