Women's Football Pyramid Renamed

By Hayley Newman

The FA has revealed the naming changes for the top four tiers of the Women's Pyramid

Last year the FA announced a new restructure would be introduced for the 2018/19 season to the Women's game.

Next season will see the introduction of a full-time professional league and a semi-professional league for the top two tiers of the pyramid.

The changes to the league names is hoped it will provide a clear separation to the leagues following the merging of the summer and winter pyramids in 2017.

The full list of changes can be viewed below:

  • Tier 1 – FA Women’s Super League (currently FA Women’s Super League 1)
  • Tier 2 – FA Women’s Championship (currently FA Women’s Super League 2)
  • Tier 3 – FA Women’s National League - Northern Premier Division / Southern Premier Division (currently FA Women’s Premier League Northern Division / Southern Division)
  • Tier 4 – FA Women’s National League – Division 1 North, Midlands, South East, South West (currently FA Women’s Premier League Division 1 North, Midlands, South East, South West)

Since the announcement of the restructures clubs across the women's pyramid have been given the opportunity to apply for a license to participate in Tiers 1 and 2.

Licenses to participate in Tier 1 and Tier 2 were granted in December to the clubs currently competing in the FA Women's Super League.

The application process has now moved to an open application phase where applications from clubs outside of The FA WSL or from those who didn’t apply in the first phase are being accepted for both tiers until Friday 9 March 2018.
