The Só Hotels Women's National Under-17 League was formed in 2018 and is currently made up of 12 clubs. The purpose of the league is to develop a player pathway for elite players into the women’s game.

The Football Association of Ireland is looking to expand the league to correspond with the growth of the women's game in Ireland with over 24,000 players currently registered.

The successful applicants would compete in the 2020 Under-17 Women’s National League. Any club/entity joining the league would be required to meet strict standards and requirements.

These standards include full use of appropriate grounds, specific coaching qualifications for coaches, medical cover, a youth development structure and financial sustainability.

Clubs or entities who intend to express an interest should do so by registered post to the address given below by Tuesday, July 2, 2019, stating club/entity name, contact and current or intended development structures.
