* TheBenchwarmer: Marnie and Liv need a certain number of players to be able to register the team for the competition. Out of desperation, they recruit the very un-sporty {{Goth}} girl Bella on the understanding that she will be a 'non-playing player', i.e. she just has to turn up to make up the numbers and will never have to take the field. However, when the team acquires an actual coach, he tells her that there is no such thing as a 'non-playing player' and makes her train and puts her into games where she gradually gains some skills.


* EducationMama: Anusha's mother is a classic Asian 'Tiger Mom'. pressing her daughter to excel in academics, music and fencing. Marnie and Liv are only able to persuade her to allow Anusha to join the team by explaining how good participation in a ''team'' sport will look on her CV.

''Mustangs FC'' is an Australian comedy drama TV series aimed at young teenagers and starring Emmanuelle Mattana as the lead character. The show is set in the suburban Australia, and focuses on Mustangs FC, an all-girls soccer team.

A group of outcasts start their own all-girls football team. As well as trying to match up against the boys, they all must juggle their lives and develop into young women while learning what it means to be a true friend.

!!''Mustangs FC'' contains examples of:

* RagtagBunchOfMisfits: The Mustangs are comprised of whoever Marnie and Liv could scrounge up to join the team.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Stepsisters Marnie and Lara. Marnie is the sports-mad tomboy who founded the Mustangs, and Lara is the girly girl who excels at gymnastics. They have to share a room at home and argue over things like Marnie's smelly sports socks ending up on Lara's side of the room, and Lara's glitter getting into Marnie's deodorant. Lara joins the team mostly to annoy her stepsister, but Marnie can't be rid of her because the team needs her: both to make up the numbers and because she is a brilliant natural athlete.
