The South Sudan women's national team represents South Sudan in international women's football.


South Sudan became independent from Sudan in 2011. The same year the women's team was created.[1]

The team then gained Confederation of African Football (CAF) membership in February 2012 and full FIFA membership in May 2012.[2][3]


African Championship[edit]

The team was in the draw for qualifying to the 2014 African Championship, but had withdrawn from their first round match against Ethiopia.
