Edinburgh Caledonia Ladies was founded in 2011 from the result of increasing popularity in womens’ football. Originally formed as The Foot Ball Club of Edinburgh Ladies alongside The Foot Ball Club of Edinburgh. In 2012 The Ladies split from the Foot Ball Club to have their own identity. This is remembered in our club slogan fortius, going from strength to strength - season to season. The Caledonia part was then inserted to represent the intercultural identity in the team.
Edinburgh Caledonia have competed in the SWFA 2nd Division South East since spring 2012. Early games were held at Inverleith Park, a few bumps short of the Himalayas. Proving ourselves successfully and as a team were rewarded with the allocation for home games at Heriot Watt University, Riccarton from Spring 2013.
In 2015 there was a league restructuring and Caley will now be playing in the newly formed 2nd Division South East/West. Caley will be playing their home games at Peffermill Playing Fields from spring 2015
