The mission of the Orlando Anarchy is to provide opportunities for female players to participate in professional tackle football in a safe, positive, and fun environment while fostering sportsmanship, teamwork, community, and individual improvement.

The Orlando Anarchy play in the Women’s Football Alliance (WFA).  The WFA was designed to create the largest and most competitive women’s tackle football league in the world.  Although the idea of women playing professional tackle football may seem relatively new to most people, its roots reach back three quarters of a century. The first evidence of women playing organized football was in 1926. It was then that an NFL team called the Frankfort, Pennsylvania Yellow Jackets employed a women’s team for halftime entertainment.

Around 1965-1966, a Cleveland talent agent, Sid Friedman, started a women’s semi-pro tackle football league as a “gimmick.” The league began with only two teams, Akron and Cleveland, and was called the Women’s Professional Football League (WPFL).

Part of the surge of interest in football, and women's sports in general, can be traced to the enactment of Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. Title “Nine”, passed into law on June 23, 1972, was the landmark federal legislation that, among other things, mandated financial equality in collegiate athletics. According to an article in Sports Illustrated, “ Participation in women's sports has increased from 300,000 in 1972, to some three million today.”
