Waterford FC can confirm that the club will be applying for a licence to compete in the 2025 SSE Airtricity Women’s Premier Division following an invite from the FAI.

Waterford FC is extremely committed to bring senior women’s football to the city & county of Waterford, and is a central vision off the club’s long-term plans.

After introducing a WU17 academy side in 2021, as well as a WU19 side at the beginning of 2023, we are focused on continuing to grow all aspects of our club.

With our women’s academy structure now strongly in-place, the club is hopeful of entering a senior women’s team into the SSE Airtricity Women’s Premier Division next season, subject to a successful licencing application to the FAI over the coming months.

Group CEO Steve Curwood was pleased with this news, commenting: “It’s very important we continue to grow the club across all fronts, so we are delighted to now be in a position to apply for a licence for a senior women’s team complementing the existing structure. We will have more information on this particular project in the coming weeks.”
