Why Play for the D.C. Divas?

Reason #1: Historic, Established Franchise

The D.C. Divas are one of the brand names of women’s football, a team that has stood the test of time. We are the third-oldest franchise in the sport, celebrating our 16th season in 2016. We have played 156 games over that time, which ranks second in women’s football history in games played.

The Divas have received tremendous media exposure over the years. We have been featured in the Washington Post, Washington Times, Baltimore Sun, NPR, WTOP, CNN, the CBS Evening News, and numerous local television and print outlets. Our players have been mentioned in Sports Illustrated, the Associated Press, ESPN’s Outside the Lines, Fox News, NBC Nightly News, ABC News, the CBS Early Show, and Good Morning America, among others. In 2004, the Divas played a charity game against a men’s team assembled by The Sports Junkies, a local radio show; the contest drew over 8,000 fans, still a record for the highest attendance ever at a women’s tackle football game.

The Divas’ online and social media platforms are without rival. DCDivas.com is one of the best websites in women’s football, filled with great information about the Divas franchise. The Divas have one of the largest Facebook followings in the Women’s Football Alliance with nearly 8,000 fans. We have the largest Instagram following of any women’s football team with nearly 5,000 followers, and our Instagram account is filled with terrific photos of Divas players. And we remain one of the only teams in women’s football with our own dedicated YouTube channel, which houses video highlights of outstanding Divas games and players.

Women’s football isn’t well-known overall, but the D.C. Divas are one of the highest-profile teams in the sport. The Divas are a historic franchise that holds itself to a professional standard, on and off the field. It’s a reputation we have built over 16 seasons of doing things the right way. We want our athletes to know they are contributing to an organization that is built to last.
