Women's Soccer Colleges Association of Ireland

History

The History of the Womens Soccer Colleges Association of Ireland:


Women's soccer at third level in Ireland began competitively in 1983 with the first inter varsity tournament in University College Dublin. In the first few years the Inter varsity championship was the main tournament. In 1987 the Ladies Soccer University Association of Ireland was formed, the name has been subsequently changed to the Women's Soccer Colleges Association of Ireland to reflect the make up of the association nowadays i.e. Institutions such as Institutes of Technology and Post Leaving Certificate Colleges, are now involved.

The association has organized a Combined Colleges team since 1988. The highlight of its existence was winning a four nation tournament against University teams representing England, Scotland and Wales.

There are currently twenty-eight colleges affiliated to the association in 2013/14, with twelve colleges playing in Premier Division league (6 North / 6 South). There are also four regional First Division leagues with sixteen teams playing in these. (Nort West / Dublin North / Dublin South / South)
