The Competition Manager of the NWFL Super 11’s, Lynsey Llewellyn has launched her vision for the return of 11-a-side women’s football competition to the UK in 2023.

Building from the NWFL strategy published in October 2022, the Super Elevens competition will serve as the ‘performance tier’ of Women’s football in the UK, providing players, coaches and club managers the opportunity to develop themselves and perform at a higher domestic level.

Super Elevens will re-introduce the competition formerly known as the ‘Diamond Series’, with NWFL teams coming together between October and December to form three new 11-a-side franchises and compete in a three-game series.

Voicing her excitement for this next level of competition, Llewellyn said “The positive feedback I have had since my appointment to bring 11-a-side football back to the calendar has been outstanding.

“I’m excited to now take the next steps by bringing the NWFL teams on board so we can bring this vision to life.
“As Women’s British American Football hits its tenth year, what a way to mark that by giving players and coaches the opportunity to develop and excel, so that we can continue our domestic and international success.”

The calendar will see these franchises host regional practices and support the development of NWFL clubs within their regions, while also bridging the gap between the NWFL and the National Programme.

Representatives from NWFL clubs and anyone interested in the development in 11-a-side Women’s football are invited to register their interest in the competition now by contacting Lynsey Llewellyn at

While player registration will not take place until later in the year, Super Elevens competition management will look to appoint General Managers and Assistants for each franchise following meetings with those who express interest in the coming months.

NWFL Super Elevens will provide a far-reaching development opportunity for players, coaches, club administrators and volunteers, so make sure to keep an eye out for further information as British Women’s American football takes another step forward.
