As a start-up business, the WNFC is growing rapidly, along with our fan base. As the league takes on new challenges and opportunities, we want our fans to experience this journey with us.
2021 was a challenging year for most businesses. Yet, the demand for competitive women's sports was at an all-time high. Specifically, participation for women and girls in football has skyrocketed. We saw this effect up close and personal through the thousands who attended the 2021 IX Cup Championship Weekend.
