London City Lionesses is a fully professional women's association football club based in Dartford, England. The team competes in FA Women's Championship during the 2019–20 season, the second tier of English women's football. The club was founded in May 2019, as an independent breakaway club from Millwall Lionesses.
On 13 May 2019, a statement was released by Millwall F.C. announcing that the board of directors and senior management at the team's official women's affiliate, Millwall Lionesses, had declared their intentions to split from the club, becoming an independent entity and operating under a new name. The breakaway was already agreed in principle by the FA. The transfer of Millwall's Championship licence was officially approved by the FA on 29 June 2019. After only six league games, manager Chris Phillips was sacked with the team sitting fourth in the Championship.
