Our Club has a place for everyone, whatever your ability! ULWFC is full of lovely, friendly girls and it’s not just about playing football. Through socials I’ve made amazing friends that can support me both on and off the pitch!

There is space for everyone, it doesn’t matter if you’re looking for something super competitive or just want to keep active and have a laugh, you’re going to make lifelong friends and memories.

The saying you get what you put in out of University could not be more accurate and we strongly recommending getting involved in a Society here at Leicester to enhance your time at University. Football is a great sport of skill, endurance and teamwork so if you think you might be interested, we’d love for you to come along and try it out! Whether you were born in boots or would like to try something new there is something for players of all varieties and we have three qualified coaches to support us.
The Club was founded in 1990 and since then has continued to go from strength to strength. Notable achievements in the last two years are the first team’s league win and league runner’s up, varsity wins from both football and futsal teams and reaching the Semi-Final of the BUCS cup. We also won Team Leicester’s Club of the Year in 2016/2017 following a successful season on and off the pitch.
Our Club is not just about playing football, it provides you with a family whilst you are at University that can offer advice, support you through harder times and answer any questions you may have. We have weekly socials on Wednesday’s usually following BUCS games which are so much fun, you get to dress up and party with the rest of Team Leicester in the O2 and maybe even go home with some cool prizes. Being part of a team is a great opportunity to meet lots of people and make great friends.
We play in the BUCS League throughout the year as well as having the opportunity to compete in the BUCS Cup and there is also a Varsity for both the first and second team as well as a Futsal Varsity which usually takes place in March.
If full sided matches aren’t for you, we also offer Futsal, or you can get involved in both as most of our girl’s do. The training and matches are of a weekend and it is a great way to improve your touch and develop a more skilful style of play.
If you’re interested, please come along to one of our training sessions or email us to find out more.
