The success of Women’s Football is high on the Federation’s list ...
The Indian Women’s Senior National Team is eligible to take part in the FIFA Women’s World Cup, AFC Asian Cup, SAFF Championships and various Invitational, International and Friendly matches involving National ‘A’ Teams.
Ranked 55 in the first update of the FIFA Women's World Ranking in 2020, the team is the reigning champion in the South Asian region -- winning all five editions of the SAFF Women's Championships (2010, 2012, 2014, 2016, 2019), the most recent of which was held in Biratnagar, Nepal where the Indian side defeated the hosts 3-1 in the final.
The team has also won the Gold medal on three occasions at the South Asian Games (2010, 2016, 2019). The most recent victory came in Pokhara, Nepal with a 2-0 victory over the hosts in the final.
In 2018, the team qualified for the second round of the Olympic qualifiers for the very first time. The second round was held in April 2019 in Mandalay, Myanmar -- where the Indian side remained unbeaten in their three matches but bowed out on goal difference after recording wins against Indonesia (2-0) and Nepal (3-1), followed by a 3-3 draw against hosts Myanmar.
