HistoryEdit

The club plays in the highest Lithuanian league, the A Lyga and has won 13 championships so far. The fourth one in 2005 and every championship since then.[1]

After its championships, the club played in the UEFA Women's Cup and from 2009 onwards in the UEFA Women's Champions League. The club participated only in the qualifying rounds though, playing 3 games each season, and the best result achieved was 1 win, 1 tie and 1 loss thus failing to move on to the next round.

The club took part in the 2010–11 UEFA Women's Champions League qualifying round and managed a good 2nd place after beating ZFK Borec (Macedonia), drawing to Klaksvikar Itrottarfelag (Faroe Islands) and only losing to England's Everton. All games were hosted by Gintra in Lithuania. In the 2014/15 edition they finished as best runners-up and advanced to the round of 32 for the first time in ten seasons.
