The Pittsburgh Force is an inactive women's American Football team based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Home games were last played at William V. Campbell Athletic Field in nearby Munhall.

In the early planning stages, the Force was originally planning to play in the National Women's Football Association, but after the NWFA folded, they decided to join the upstart Women's Football Alliance.

History[edit | edit source]
