Welcome to the Women's Football / Soccer Task Force, a joint initiative of WikiProject Women's sport and WikiProject Football. This task force focuses on articles related to women's football / soccer including:

  • Women's players, clubs, managers, leagues and competitions, seasons and associated articles
  • Women's football / soccer national teams
  • International women's football / soccer competitions including tournaments and matches

Our main goals are to:

  • ensure women's football / soccer-related articles are represented on Wikipedia by creating and editing related articles
  • establish and organise standards for women's football / soccer-related articles resulting in well-written articles
  • improve the visibility of articles related to women's football / soccer by nominating them for DYK placement on the Wikipedia homepage, or improving them to good or featured status

To join, please add your name to the Members section. There are many ways for you to contribute - small and large. If you have a question, post it on the project's talk page.


Although the majority of top women's leagues and players around the world are not included currently under WP: FOOTY's frequently debated notability guidelines, often times there is enough media coverage about a player, team, or league that meets the WP:GNG guideline, which trumps WP:NFOOTY. The key to ensuring that an article that you create is not deleted is providing adequate referencing to meet WP:BASIC, WP:GNG or WP:SPORTCRIT.

If you have any questions or run into any issues, feel free to post them on the this project's talk page. Also, be sure to tag any new article's talk page with {{WikiProject Women's sport|footy=yes}}.
