President: Isobel Oldroyd


The University of Birmingham is dedicated to making football accessible to everyone, regardless of ability. As a club, our ‘Just Play’ set up offers players the opportunity to train recreationally each week, without the commitment to play games, to encourage those who may be new to the game, or who do not wish to be involved competitively. 


As a club, we also make an effort to contribute to events in our local community, such as volunteering annually at the Birmingham half marathon, and providing links with refereeing courses. These opportunities are offered to all our members.

Women's High Performance Football Centres

Football Association Partnership

One of only nine universities in the country that are official FA High Performance Centres for women’s football, the University of Birmingham provides an educational and community-based setting to recruit, develop and deploy coaches, who lead and inspire player development specifically in the women’s and girls’ game. A key role for the centres is to support and drive The FA’s ambition to increase the number of quality, qualified coaches; double participation numbers by 2020; and create the next generation of the game’s behind-the-scenes workforce, are all central to the growth of the women’s game.



The benefit for our club is that there is an on-site Coach Development Officer working with BUCS coaches and supporting people who want to get involved, as well as workshops and activities right on campus. The partnership with the FA provides a fantastic opportunity to link with clubs working at all levels to deploy coaches into to provide great opportunities for their development.



In addition, the club are partnered with Birmingham and West Midlands Ladies Football Club (BWMLFC), in which the University coaches take an active role in leading the club’s training, and players have an increased games programme to enhance their development.
