A total of 18 female coaches are in charge of Women’s football teams in the world.

As a revelation that women are beginning to takeover their game is that fact that current top 4 seeded teams are coached by women.

In the WWC held in France this summer, the two teams that squared off in the finals (USA and the Netherlands), had Desire Ellis and Serina Wiegman – all female sitting in the dugouts.

Men had the numerical advantage with 15 gaffers in the 2019 WWC but a record 9 female coaches were more successful with palatable results. Of the 9 female – led teams in the WWC held in France this summer, five including home favourites France and defending champions U.S. – reached the quarter finals, while Japan made it into the round of 16’s.

With the long list of women’s coaches above, it is clear that women are breaking lose and getting more involved in the game.

The last 2 Women’s FIFA World Cup have been won by the US team coached by a woman.

According to CGTN reports in 2014-2015 just three percent of coaching licenses were held by women. Only 65 women held the top UEFA pro license compared to 9,387 men. Power is set to change hands with the rapid increase of Women in the ‘Women’s’ beautiful game.
