In the preceding decade women's football has been segmented into multiple leagues,
fragmenting the highest talent pool and separating the resources required to move the
sport forward. This 2011 unification and landmark growth structure echoes that of Women's
Basketball and Women's Tennis. In addition to delivering fans the most competitive match-ups
seen to date, this is an imperative threshold to creating a sustainable and blossoming future
for the sport.
"This is an exciting time for women's football and the WFA. With 62 teams across the country
working together for a common goal, there is nothing we cannot accomplish. We are looking
forward to one of the most competitive seasons in women’s football history," said Jeff King,
The Women's Football Alliance is a full-contact American football league comprised of 62 teams
across the United States and Mexico. From Florida to Oregon and from New England to
California, the WFA is the largest and fastest growing league in America.
