Fiona McIntyre appointed Head of Girls’ and Women’s Football

The Scottish FA has appointed Scottish Women’s Football Chief Executive Officer Fiona McIntyre as Head of Girls’ and Women’s Football.

In a seven year spell with SWF, holding the position of Chief Executive Officer since June 2017, Fiona has helped to drive huge growth in the game, from participation levels to restructuring SWF competitions.

Her new role, commencing on 15 March, will see her lead on the delivery of the Scottish FA’s Girls’ and Women’s Strategy across a multitude of key areas, including National Teams, elite competitions, clubs, grassroots and youth participation.

She will aim to build on the recent success the Scottish FA has had in growing the girls’ and women’s game, which has seen the number of registered grassroots football participants rise to over 17,000 – an increase of 68 percent since 2016.

The game has also benefited from recent successes for the Scotland Women’s National Teams, including the SWNT’s qualification for the FIFA Women’s World Cup and Scotland’s successful hosting of the UEFA Women’s Under-19 European Championships in 2019.
