Women’s football reflects the men’s game in Scotland, with Glasgow sides being the dominant force.


In addition to some of the finest grass playing pitches in Scotland, Glasgow is home to the Toryglen football facility. The facility includes a full sized indoor football pitch, 3 outdoor floodlit synthetic grass football pitches, 1 outdoor grass pitch, strength & conditioning facility, and 13 seven-a-side pitches making it the finest football facility in Scotland. Each of the synthetic grass football pitches is built to the highest FIFA 2 Star standards, ideal for training and suitable for FIFA approved match play. This purpose built football facility is home to the Scotland women’s national team and accessible to all.

Celtic LFC train and play at their own facilities, namely, Barrowfield and the £8m Lennoxtown Centre of Excellence which opened in 2007. Glasgow City and the SFA West Regional squad are based at the Glasgow Green Football Centre.
