Who are we...?
As UEA's Club of the Year 2017, UEAWFC is an amazing club to be a part of. Get involved in training sessions, BUCs league matches, awesome socials including meals, laser tag, tournaments and occasionally drinking plenty, whilst meeting a really great bunch of people always up for a laugh along the way. We welcome all abilities - from superstars to those who have never kicked a ball before. We have two teams in the BUCs league, a local league 7 aside team and a county5ives team this year, meaning we can get more girls than ever involved in university football, and being part of a friendly, inclusive club. We provide both a competitive environment and a social one, allowing members to choose how much they'd like to be involved. There are also opportunities to fundraise, become a coach and improve skills outside the sport to help boost CVs!
Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for all the latest details and photos, and watch one of our many YouTube videos.

We have four teams within the club. Our first and second teams play in BUCs matches on Wednesdays against other universities.
We also have a team that play in a local five aside league on Monday evenings. They will be run by a club rep who will be working to develop leadership skills. This team is a great, fun opportunity to play football with no pressure!
We have a newly formed development team that play in the Norfolk Women's and Girls 7-aside league, with fixtures played on a Sunday afternoon.
For BUCs games, kick-off is usually 2 pm, with some games played at home and some away. The kit is provided on the day of the match.
Trials will be held at the beginning of the year however they do not cement the teams and are held mainly to provide the captains with a chance to identify each player's abilities ready for the games that are scheduled so early in the academic year.
Team selections vary each week with commitment, effort, ability, attitude, fitness and availability all being taken into account. Do not be disheartened if you don't make the squad in the first week or two, this does not mean you will not in the future. Our coaching staff have the tough job of selections each week alongside the captains.
