17 countries in Europe are home to over 200 women’s American football teams. This fact is astounding because in the United States – the birthplace of American football – women rarely, if ever play. However, in Europe, the situation is clearly quite different.
In tribute to such a prevalence of women in the sport, The Growth of a Game has compiled a complete list of women’s American Football teams in Europe. This is the first time that such a body of research has ever been compiled.
Below you will find an alphabetized list of every country in Europe where at least one women’s American football team exists. Under each of these headings, you will find an alphabetized list of the women’s American football teams in that respective country. This list only includes only clubs that have at least one adult women’s tackle team. We’ve also provided links to every team’s website. Where we were unable to locate the website for a team, we’ve provided links to the team’s respective Facebook page. It is important to note than some of the women’s teams are not featured on their club’s website, which is why some of the links appear to lead to men’s teams. To view the complete list of men’s teams, click here.
This list is also ever-expanding and evolving, with missing information to be provided by The Growth of a Game community and staff as time goes on. Additions, edits, and improvements are welcomed in the comments section below. This list will be updated regularly.
In closing, we would like to give special thanks to the following individuals. We would not have been able to compile this list nearly as completely or as effectively without their help:
Céline Martin – France
Jo Kilby – England
Sari Kuosmanen – Finland
The Growth of a Game is proud to present the first ever comprehensive list of women’s American Football teams in Europe.
