Swansea City Ladies Football Club (Welsh: Clwb Pêl-droed Merched Dinas Abertawe) is a ladies football club based in Swansea, Wales, currently playing in the Women's Welsh Premier League and South Wales Ladies Football League.
Formed in 2002, the team were members of the inaugural Welsh Premier Women's League in 2009/10 and came top of the Southern Conference, winning all six of their matches.
This set up a meeting with Northern winners, Caernarfon Town Ladies, with the winner clinching the title and becoming Wales' representatives in the UEFA Women's Champions League.
They beat the Canaries 4-0 at Haverfordwest to qualify for Europe for the very first time. For the first time Swansea qualified to UEFA competitions in 2010 after winning the Welsh Premier League. As Wales is not in the top leagues by the UEFA coefficient for women, the team had to go through the qualifying stage of the UEFA Women's Champions League. Swansea City were drawn out in Group 5 and paired with ŽNK Krka (Slovenia) - who hosted the mini group - top seeds CF Bardolino Verona (Italy) and FC Baia Zugdidi (Georgia). Swansea achieved one win in its group, beating Baia Zugdidi 2–1 and ended the group on place 3 of 4, thus failing to move on to the knockout stages.
They defended their title in 2011 again against Caernarfon with a 3–1 final win, thus would participate in the 2011–12 UEFA Women's Champions League.
19 April 2015 Swansea Beat Cardiff City Womens 4-2 in the FAW Women's Cup.
Thu 28 Apr 2016 Swansea beat PILCS in the Welsh Premier Womens League Cup 4-0.
