During its important fifth season, the WNFC stands as a model of innovation in professional women’s soccer. With a presence spanning 16 national teams and a roster representing a large number of countries, the competition embodies the global appeal and economic potential of women’s football.

“This partnership represents more than just a collaboration between two organizations; it is a commitment to nurturing talent, promoting inclusivity and empowering girls at every stage of their football journey. Together we will build bridges from flag to tackle, creating a seamless path for aspiring athletes to achieve their dreams,” comments Odessa JenkinsCEO of the Women’s National Football Conference.

As the national leader in non-contact youth soccer, Gridiron Football leagues, camps and tournaments provide an unparalleled training ground for more than 30,000 athletes ages 4 to 17.

With a steadfast commitment to innovation, inclusivity and economic growth, the WNFC and Gridiron Football are ready to chart a new course for women’s football; one that promises to leave an indelible mark on the sporting and business landscape.
