Netherlands Women’s Soccer League

This is a man’s world where women take over a tip. Football.Almost all clubs in The Netherlands now has one or women or girls team. But when the fan is started and how it is played.


Around 1896 it was in Rotterdam with a few women have played football. This disgust of the Dutch Football Association and they threatened even with the decline of membership in the club Sparta. Despite this incident, the former women’s football finally incorporated in 1971 with the KNVB and since 1973 is also a national women’s team.
Anno 2011 KNVB that?? s 1.18 million members. As so?? n 112 681 women. This is about a little more than 9.5 percent of the total file. But a woman and girl football is still growing every year.


In the case of women’s football rules is the same as for male football. Only it strikes me that when women’s football slower on the cards get stuck.


Women’s football will once played in competitions. Here you have different classes to start with the young. The younger girls are divided into age 6-13 pupils in competitions called F, E and D teams.

  • When the F-law is about football so mixed boys and girls in a team, but it is also possible with just girls. F or assigned to other teams where only boys can sit in.
  • E is for girls from 9-10 and also have the choice to play with the boys or a separate law. One difference with the F is that the girls in the E team can be divided into a maiden league was enough teams are in the area. It should also be chosen to play in a mixed league.
  • D team that E and F on a half field seven to seven games, but can be chosen to face a team with a full field. And this can be selected again for a girl or a mixed league contest.

When the girls 14-19 years old, they are classified in the junior leagues. It is played in C, B and A teams. At this age, it is becoming increasingly serious and it will be mostly played in the girl contests. If a team plays against guys that this is possible. From the B team, there is a league where the best teams from the district to compete. Each team will be divided into level reached by the performance. In the next season 2011-2012, each team in the second, or the first league.
Students and juniors are playing with a fall and a spring competition with the exclusion of the league. For each team, it is possible that it is played with a team of seven. Although, from the new season will no longer be possible with the B and A juniors.
As a senior by about 19 years. played in a ladies competition. This is quite a competition that lasts all season. As a team, you can be attributed to the sixth, fifth, fourth, third, second, first and the league from 2011-2012, there will be a single class.
There will also be 2011-2012 from sixth to fourth grade will be played in autumn and spring competition. The third through the league will play in a very competitive and with the championship period.
At this time it is not required to graduate as a team to win the championship. This also differs from 2011-2012 and the champion should be promoted.
With all these new changes KNVB hopes to reduce the sometimes large differences in strength competitions so that everyone can play through the level and the fun continues. It is very common that women’s teams to win agree with 11-0 or lose.

League Cup

In addition to normal competition, there are also the cup, this is a competition that runs between all female teams in a district. You usually first divided into two halves of a competition with four teams. In each team is a game that is played. The person who is ultimately the initial advances to the next round. This is probably correct, but the knockout rounds lose you are out, you win, you move on to the next round. When you finally got through to the final, the match will be played on neutral ground with a neutral judge. The first and second class, third, fourth and fifth class .Also for A, B and C juniors has a cup. For the pupils will probably consist of tournaments.
Let’s hope that women’s football is far continues to grow so small pink dot is a larger point.
