20 join inaugural Scottish Women’s

Premier League

The first Annual General Meeting (“AGM”) of the Scottish Women’s Premier League (“SWPL”) took place today [25th May] at Hampden Park.

The historic meeting saw the creation of SWPL1 with twelve teams (from the previous top tier of ten teams) alongside the creation of SWPL2 with eight teams entering the league.

With 20 teams now confirmed across the two leagues, alongside the appointment of the board directors for the SWPL, this formally concludes the adoption of the professional women’s game into the new format which is designed to grow and promote women’s football across Scotland.

The inaugural clubs of the SWPL are:


Aberdeen FC

Celtic FC

Dundee United FC

Glasgow City FC

Glasgow Women FC

Hamilton Academicals FC

Heart of Midlothian FC

Hibernian FC

Motherwell FC

Partick Thistle

Rangers FC

Spartans FC


Boroughmuir Thistle FC

East Fife FC

Gartcairn FC

Kilmarnock FC

Montrose FC

Queens Park FC

St Johnstone FC

Stirling University FC

In addition, the following were elected as directors of the board of the SWPL representing SWPL clubs:

Chris Duffy (Celtic FC), Andrew McKinlay (Heart of Midlothian FC), Amy McDonald (Rangers FC), Laura Montgomery (Glasgow City FC) and Zola McGoldrick (Boroughmuir Thistle FC)

Fiona McIntyre, Interim Managing Director of the SWPL, commented: “This is an historic day for Scottish women’s football.

“I am delighted to welcome the first 20 clubs to the new league and to congratulate the first club-appointed directors on their election to the board of the SWPL.

“It is important to recognise all the hard work that has taken place to get us to this place.  Scottish women’s football can now look forward with confidence as a result of that hard work, and the commitment of so many people over so many years.”
