Bristol City WFC

Bristol City WFC

Bristol City Women's Football Club is a women's association football team from the city of Bristol, who compete in FA Women's Super League, the highest division of women's football in England. Formed in 1998 as Bristol Rovers W.F.C., they were renamed Bristol Academy W.F.C. in 2005 following increased involvement of the Bristol Academy of Sport, based at Filton College (now part of South Gloucestershire and Stroud College). A second change of name, this time to Bristol City was approved by the FA Women's Football Board in time for the 2016 WSL season. They play their home games at Bath City's Twerton Park. Bristol City Women won promotion to FA WSL 1 in 2016.
