Gibraltar women's national football team
The Gibraltar women's national football team represents the British Overseas Territory of Gibraltar in international women's association football. Although the Gibraltar Football Association is a member of UEFA and FIFA, the association is yet to field a women's team in FIFA Women's World Cup or UEFA Women's Championship qualification. Instead, the team has largely been restricted to appearances at the biennial Island Games football tournaments, first appearing in the 2015 edition. The team is currently managed by Steve Cummings, assisted by Johnny Thick.
Women's football is still in its infancy in Gibraltar, with only three teams participating in the Gibraltar Women's Football League as of the 2018–19 season. In 2014, it did host a women's development tournament organised by UEFA, losing 1–0 in it first game to Andorra. The side lost all three games against Andorra, Luxembourg and an Algarve XI. Since then, Gibraltar's involvement in UEFA sanctioned women's football has been limited to sending under-16 girls' teams to participate in development tournaments, most recently in Malta in 2019.
Since 2015 the Gibraltar women's team has taken part in the Island Games, and are yet to take part in a UEFA Women's Championship since their admission into the organisation.
