The United Arab Emirates women's national football team is the female representative football team for the United Arab Emirates. In mid 2009, the UAE Football Association formed the womens football committee dedicated to creating a national team that could officially represent the country on the international stage.[2][3][4][5][6]

The Team has won the WAFF Womens Championship in 2010 and 2011, but never has participated in a final tournament of the Asian Football Confederation so far.

History[edit]

UAE played their first international match at the 2010 West Asian Football Federation Women's Championship.[7] After a 4–2 over Palestine there, they in fact won the tournament and one year later defended the title.[8]
