Women’s football in Scotland will be soundtracked for the upcoming season by emerging Edinburgh pop duo The Eves.
Big Love, an uplifting and empowering anthem for the women’s game, has been announced as the official song for the 2022/23 season.
It will be the theme for Scottish Women’s Football (SWF) performance competitions including the new national Scottish Women’s Championship and Scottish Women’s League One leagues which kick off in August, as well as the Scottish Cup and the National Academy Programme.

SWF chair Vivienne Mclaren said: “This is the first time SWF has had an official song for the whole season, but the positive and uplifting message of ‘Big Love’ is exactly what our clubs need as we head into a new season with fresh energy and new competitive national leagues.
“The pandemic effectively shut down football for women and girls for months, even when men’s clubs were given dispensation to play, and as we emerge into a new era for women’s football I think this hit by The Eves encapsulates the spirit of solidarity and positive role models that makes our game unique.”
The Eves are comprised of Marissa Keltie and Caroline Gilmour, best known for their 2021 iTunes top ten hit ‘Brand New Day’ which was Single of the Week on BBC Radio Scotland and playlisted on BBC Radio 2 for five weeks.
The duo have played TRNSMT and Tiree Music Festival, and have supported Horse on her UK-wide tour ahead of opening for Belinda Carlisle at her Kelvingrove Bandstand show on Friday night.
They said: “We are honoured that ‘Big Love’ has been chosen as the official anthem of the Scottish Women’s Football season. We know that women and girls are inspiring and making history in playing fields across Scotland and it is humbling to know we will be part of their soundtrack this year.
“We look forward to seeing some footballing stars at our next gig at Room 2 in Glasgow on the 6 August!”
