UEFA Women’s EURO 2022 is coming to England this summer and promises to be the biggest women’s sporting event in Europe.

The Netherlands won the previous UEFA Women’s Championship back in 2017, triumphing on home soil for the first time but a lot has changed since then. Can the Dutch defend their crown? Or will we see a different winner this year?

Current favourites are Spain with England a close second and have a fantastic chance of bringing the trophy home. Let’s hope that it won’t come to penalties!

The team will be led by 25 year old Leah Williamson who has said “This is an incredibly proud moment for me and my family and I'm honoured to be asked to lead us at the EUROs”. “Although I will be wearing the armband, I know we have a squad full of leaders who share my pride and passion in playing for our country. Whether I'm captain or not, I will never take anything for granted and will always do my best for England every time I pull on the shirt.”

The tournament is scheduled to take place from 6-31 July and will see the pinnacle of women’s football compete for Europe’s biggest prize. 16 teams will be in action at 10 different venues in 9 cities across the country with Old Trafford hosting the opening match and Wembley Stadium staging the final, marking a unique moment of hosting back-to-back men’s and women’s EURO final events.

Tickets are available for the tournament starting from just £5 with matches taking place across England in Brighton & Hove, Brentford, Manchester, Milton Keynes, Rotherham, Sheffield, Southampton, and Wigan & Leigh.

England’s tournament kicks off on the 6th of July against Austria at Old Trafford at 8pm. Let’s dust off those flags from last year and support our Women’s team to victory.

Nadine Kessler, UEFA’s chief of women’s football, said: “This UEFA Women’s EURO 2022 will be groundbreaking from start to finish.
“The biggest women’s sports event in Europe will provide an unprecedented opportunity for us to inspire the next generation of players and fans.
“Our host cities, clubs and local authorities are up to the challenge of providing more opportunities for women and girls than ever before and knowing The FA’s long-term commitment to the women’s game, we have no doubt that together we will set a new European benchmark.”

There will be a family and local community-focused UEFA and EURO’s Roadshow that will travel 800 miles, making 10 stops across 43 days, finishing on 2 July in London – just a few days before the tournament’s opening match at Old Trafford.

As the Women’s EUROs draws closer, organisers are aiming to inspire more communities, particularly young people and families, to encourage them to get involved in the biggest European women’s sport event in history.
