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.

Notability criteria[edit]

Although the majority of top women's leagues and players around the world are not included currently under WikiProject Football's frequently debated notability guideline: WP:NFOOTY, often times there is enough media coverage about a player, team, or league that meets the WP:GNG or WP:SPORTCRIT guidelines, which take precedence over WP:NFOOTY. For college athletes and coaches, see WP:NCOLLATH. For younger athletes, see WP:YOUNGATH.

The key to ensuring that an article that you create is not deleted is providing adequate referencing to meet WP:GNG or WP:SPORTCRIT. Per WP: SPORTCRIT, a player is considered notable if they have "participated in a major international amateur or professional competition at the highest level." This includes national team championships and club championships.

  • Make sure the article is tagged with relevant project tags suchs as {{WP Women's sport|footy=yes}} and {{WP Women}} so that other editors can further improve the article or contribute to an Articles for deletion (AfD) discussion, if needed.

If you have any questions or run into any issues, feel free to post them on the this project's talk page.


For a list of active and former top-division leagues, see LEAGUES.
