9 v 9 Womens League

Since 2015, Cumberland have made some changes to the way local women’s football is played. Since then we have doubled participation in the game, with our local women’s county league growing from 5 teams to 10. 

The Cumberland FA Women’s League offers weekly 9v9 football for teams during the months of March-October. Offering a fun yet competitive format for local teams to play in, guaranteeing some sunshine along the way. 

The league also supports Under 16 teams transitioning into open age football by falling in line with their end of season programme.

Women's Over 35 Football

For the first time this year, women in Cumberland have the opportunity to play with and against other women aged 35 and over. More than 50 women have taken part in the free Turn Up and Play monthly sessions.

Any women aged 35 and over are invited to come along and play at the free events, with any experience welcome. The events are played in a friendly atmosphere as we aim to increase the number of playing opportunities for this age group.
