The Burundi women’s national football team, nicknamed the Swallows (French: Hirondelles), represents Burundi in women’s international football competitions. The team has competed since 2016 in matches recognised by FIFA, the sport’s international governing body. A senior national team has been continually inactive, but an under-20 team has played in numerous matches. Further development of football in the country faces challenges found across Africa, including inequality and limited access to education for women. A women’s football programme did not exist in Burundi until 2000, and only 455 players had registered for participation on the national level by 2006.
