Chelsea FC Women is a fully integrated female club with performance-based and developmental objectives.
Originally called Chelsea Ladies Football Club, it was established in 1992 and has been affiliated with Chelsea Football Club since 2004. The first team competes in the FA Women's Super League, with the reserves playing in the FA WSL Development League Southern Division.
Chelsea FC Women is committed to producing a team capable of challenging the very best sides in the country. This aim will be achieved by producing players through the Regional Talent Club and Academy College Programme with the ability, capability and mentality to perform within the senior sides, supported by attracting high-quality players with international experience.
In 2015, Chelsea won a famous double, becoming champions of the FA Women’s Super League for the first time and winning the FA Women’s Cup at Wembley Stadium. The Blues then followed this up by lifting the FA WSL Spring Series in 2017, and further silverware followed in 2018 in the form of another FA Women's Cup triumph followed by the WSL title, so completing the domestic Double for a second time. Chelsea also reached the Champions League semi-finals for the first time in our history, a feat repeated the following season.
In the 2019/20 season, the Blues clinched the Continental Tyres League Cup and were declared the Women's Super League champions based on a points-per-game system following the the premature end to the league due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Chelsea enjoyed a trophy-laden 2020/21 season having won the the FA Community Shield, as well as retaining the Conti Cup for a second successive year and becoming back-to-back WSL champions. The Blues were also Champions League finalists for the first time, but missed out on the European trophy to Barcelona.
