The Sri Lanka women's national football team is the female representative football team for Sri Lanka. As of 2014 the national team has never entered qualifying for the FIFA Women's World Cup nor the AFC Women's Asian Cup.

The team has played in all three editions of the South Asian SAFF Women's Championship, where it reached the semi-finals in 2012 and 2014.[2][3]


Sri Lanka women's national football team played their first game in 2010 against India which they lost 8-1. Sri Lanka women's national football team had never played in FIFA Women's World Cup or Women's Asia Cup and did not enter the qualifications as of 2014. They have played in the SAFF Women's Championship and in the South Asian Games. Due to their lack of experience they didn't show any great performance in the regional level of football. But they have qualified for the Semi Finals of 2012 and 2014 SAFF Women's Championships.

Sri Lanka made their continental level football debut in the 2016 Summer Olympic Qualifiers when they were soundly beaten 16-0 by Myanmar. In the next game they were defeated by India. In 2016 They participated in the South Asian Games but lost all of their matches in the football tournament. Sri Lanka participated in the 4th SAFF Women's Championship in 2016 but they failed to reach the semi finals after a shock defeat to Maldives which are ranked below them.
