Nottingham Forest Women Football Club is an English women's association football club affiliated with men's Nottingham Forest. It is a member of the FA Women's National League North.

History[edit]

The first known existence of a female Forest team was that which competed in the Notts and Derby League in the early 1970s but the club in its current form was officially founded in 1990 by the NFFC Community arm and then developed by the players. The small group of young women advertised in the men's official programme against Everton for players to join them.

The current kit is sponsored by Showcase Cinemas.

The team picked up their first National League title in the 2007–08 season, winning the National League North following a 5–1 victory in their last game of the season against Sheffield Wednesday. In 2010-11 they recorded their highest placing in the National League, then the top division of English women's football, finishing 2nd to Sunderland. They also reached the FA Women's Premier League Cup final in March 2011, but were defeated by Barnet on penalties.

They currently play in the FA Women's Premier League Northern Division.

Forest Women applied to join the FA WSL in 2014,[1] however were unsuccessful.[2]

On 1 July 2019 the club changed its name from 'Nottingham Forest Ladies' to 'Nottingham Forest Women' and their logo dropped the word 'ladies' to become the same as the men's.[3]

Stadium[edit]

Nottingham Forest Women have played their home matches at Eastwood Community F.C. since February 2019. The stadium has a capacity of 5000 including 500 seated and has a 3G pitch.

Prior to playing at Eastwood, they played at Carlton Town FC (Stoke Lane, Gedling, Nottinghamshire, NG4 2QS). The club have also previously played at Grenwich Avenue, the home of Basford United F.C.
