Wales Women's football, which dates back to 1993, may seem fresh, but it's just the tip of the iceberg – it has a deeper history. The men's football team was founded in 1876, and there is a lot more information on the history of men's football. So today we're going to talk about the history of women's soccer in Wales. Let's start if you are ready.
During the sporting revolution in England, the development of sport was incredibly shaky. There were three main sports that people were interested in: tennis, rugby, and football. However, it was believed that only men should play football because it was too rough for women. After a competition between two women in Scotland, the seeds of Welsh women's football were sown. This led to the idea that women could play football, and nowadays, there is more than one women's team, and it's easy to bet on them.

After a match in London, the Cardiff Post made its opinion on women's football abundantly clear by dubbing it an "Amusing Football Match." According to historians, however, women have been big supporters of rugby and football in the past, but there have been restrictions on their playing and even watching. If we look at old newspaper clippings, we can see that the church strongly disapproved of women's football.
People's views have certainly changed since then; we can be sure of that. But it's impossible not to see the effects of the past on women's football. Since the 1980s, women's football has really taken off, not just in Britain but all over the world.
Women's football has always been more developed in England and Scotland. Prior to 1993, the Welsh women's football team played many matches, but the results were always disappointing.
As you might expect, there is not much historical data on Welsh women's football. Since 2000, there has been an increased focus on women's football, and even more attention has been paid to it. It may be a bit unrealistic to expect Wales' dark past to suddenly change with these investments, but valuing women's football is crucial for the future of the game and the future of the team.
When we look at the history of Welsh women's football, we can see that the defeats are too many. But it was the Euro 2005 tournament that broke the chain. Even though we didn't make it to the final, with the media coverage, the team gained a lot of popularity, and the results started to improve after that.
To Sum Up
The Wales Women’s National Team's future looks bright compared to past disappointments. Because throughout their history, they have only continued to improve, and now, with the growing interest in women's soccer, the team has improved a lot. We expect to see some big wins on TV in the near future.
