Norwich City Women is the women's football club affiliated to Norwich City F.C.[1] Previously operated by a board of volunteers, Norwich City F.C. formally integrated the women's side into the club in February 2022.[2] [3]

The club was originally founded in 1982 and competed in the East Anglian League for their first season before transferring to the Chiltern League. The club dominated both of these leagues until 1987, a spell which included a Women's FA Cup win in 1986 against Doncaster Rovers Belles at Carrow Road.[4]

Norwich City appointed former footballer Flo Allen as general manager of the women's side in June 2022.[5]

Scott Emmerson is the current manager, having been appointed to that post in February 2024. Norwich City Women compete in the FA Women's National League Division One South East, in the fourth tier of English women's football.[1] According to Norwich City, "they are the official women's team of Norwich City Football Club".[1] Norwich City Women play their home matches at The Nest.[2] Norwich City Women are the current 2023 Norfolk County Cup Champions.

In April 2023, Norwich City Women played their first match at Carrow Road since their integration into Norwich City F.C., running out 5–3 winners against Ashford Town in an FA Women's National League Division One South East Fixture. The match was played in front of a crowd of 7,585 spectators.[6]
