The women's national team of Ethiopia competed for the first time to qualify for the African Cup of Nations in 2002 and was able to qualify straight away, but only finished bottom of the group at the final tournament and thus could not qualify for the World Cup taking place a year later. In 2004 , the team made it to the semi-finals, where they lost 4-0 to eventual title winners Nigeria. In the game for third place, Ghana only lost on penalties. After that, Ethiopia only took part in the qualifying games for the Olympic Games in Beijing, but could not qualify for it. The team reached the third round of qualification, but then withdrew after a 1: 3 against Ghana. All international matches held so far (as of June 9, 2012) have been played against African teams.
In July 2008, the Ethiopian Football Association was suspended by FIFA for disregarding a decided action plan .
