The Great Britain Women's team programme is the pinnacle of female tackle football in Britain. The programme both provides the team for international fixtures and the central pillar for women's football development. Launched as a concept in 2012 to drive development of the women's game the programme continues to have a very significant impact on the growth in both numbers of players and the quality of play.

As of August 8th 2015 the Great Britain Women's team is ranked No2 in Europe.
