2015 Boston Renegades Team Photo

The Boston Renegades are a full contact, semi-professional women’s football team. We are proud to be a part of the Women’s Football Alliance (WFA), the premier league for women’s football in the United States.

Boston got its first women’s tackle football team in 2000 with the inception of the New England Storm. A number of talented teams followed, but the strongest was born in 2007 when Ernie Boch Jr. purchased two of the teams, the Boston Rampage and Massachusetts Mutiny, and combined them as the Boston Militia. The Militia played their inaugural season in 2008 and went on to be one of the most successful women’s football programs in the country, winning three national championships in a five-year span.

In January of 2015, Boch retired the Boston Militia brand and transferred ownership of the team. A dedicated group of former players created Boston Women’s Football LLC and kept the team alive as the Boston Renegades. Our vision is to expand the visibility and influence of women’s football, and to bring another championship home to Boston.
