Explore Women's EURO matches by our host cities & venues

Don’t miss out on attending the record-breaking tournament everyone will be talking about.

Whether it is the first intro to live football for your daughter or son, a night out with your friends, or a chance to bring the family together, you can have a great day out in one of our host cities and then in the afternoon/evening watch the game in a fan-friendly environment. You can’t beat the stadium atmosphere where you’ll see top-class football and the stars of the women’s game take to the pitch. 

Sheffield is a city steeped in football history – the world’s oldest football club is from the Steel City, while Bramall Lane hosted the first ever floodlit football match. You’ll find so much to enjoy as you start to explore the awesome architecture, and step inside the amazing array of repurposed buildings now housing independent eateries, bars and micro-breweries. It also has a thriving arts scene and live entertainment. So why not soak up the heritage, visit a gallery or head to a live gig before enjoying one of the standout matches of the group stage?

Sheffield is a good base for fans of Netherlands, Sweden and Switzerland with all three sides having the opportunity to pack out the 30,000-seater stadium. As well as those mouth-watering three Group C clashes, fans will get the chance to see a bumper semi-final with sides playing for the right to make it through to the Wembley showpiece and a shot at silverware.

The reigning champions Netherlands kick-off their title defence in front of a primetime Saturday night audience and they could hardly have asked for a tougher start against a Sweden side currently ranked second in the world and fresh from winning silver at the Tokyo Olympics.

Sweden will then take on Switzerland four days later, before the Swiss round off the group proceedings at the home of Sheffield United with their game against the defending champions.

Saturday 9 July 8pm: Netherlands vs Sweden

Sunday 17 July 5pm: Switzerland vs Netherlands

Fancy another fixture but at a smaller venue? Check out the four fixtures for Rotherham, just a stones throw from Sheffield


Rotherham is a town like no other, steeped in history, industry and innovation. It is a family-friendly place with hidden gems such as Gulliver’s theme park, a giant water splash at Clifton Park, Magna Science Adventure Centre, and the grandeur of Wentworth Woodhouse, a Grade l listed country house.

It is also the place to be to follow the fortunes of France, currently ranked No.5 in the world, with all their Group D encounters taking place at the New York Stadium. With a 12,000 capacity, you can expect plenty of noise and an intimate atmosphere for the fixtures against Italy, Belgium and Iceland. The home of Rotherham United will also play host to a quarter-final with the winner of France’s Group D taking on the runner-up in Group C, containing defending champions the Netherlands.

Milton Keynes
Milton Keynes is one of the fastest growing and vibrant places in the UK. Located between London and Birmingham it is easily accessible by road or rail to enjoy the full UEFA Women’s EURO 2022 experience. In-between enjoying the football visit the Grade ll listed Centre MK shopping centre, see a production at the theatre and visit MK Gallery. It’s also an extreme sports hotspot where you can water-ski and wakeboard, find the UK’s longest indoor real-snow ski and boarding slope, and visit the home of Red Bull Racing. 

The much-vaunted group of death will be played out at Stadium MK in front of a potential 30,000 fans. Only two can progress from Spain, Germany, Finland and Denmark in Group B. And three of the crucial fixtures can be seen at the home of MK Dons. Finland are the underdogs in Group B but they would love nothing more than toppling their Scandinavian neighbours in Milton Keynes on Matchday 2. Anna Signeul’s side edged out Portugal to top Group E in qualifying and with all-time top scorer Linda Sällström leading the line, they won’t lack a goal threat.

The good-natured rivalry should make for a friendly atmosphere at Stadium MK and the 5pm kick-off for two of the games makes these ideal games to gather together the mums, dads, sons and daughters from your youth football team or community club for a summer catch-up.

Happy to travel, or live within commuting distance of London? Don’t forget Brentford Community Stadium will host a further four fixtures


Brighton and Hove
Brighton and Hove is a wise place to be in the height of summer. Nestled between the South Downs and the sea, and yet only 60 minutes by train from London you won’t be short of things to do before and after a game.

The game to watch is Norway verses Austria. Why not make it a weekend trip to see the game on a Friday evening before heading out and about in this creative city to enjoy live music and dinner at an award-winning restaurant. The next day visit the historic Royal Pavilion, the traditional Brighton Pier and do some shopping at the famous Lanes and North Lanes shopping areas and enjoy the free-spirited atmosphere you won’t find anywhere else.

The final game taking place at the home of Premier League side Brighton and Hove Albion, is a quarter-final which will see the winners of this group take on the runners-up in the so-called group of death, Group B, at the 30,000-seater stadium.

Want to even more of the south coast? Why not include a visit to Southampton to see Norway V Northern Ireland.


A sunny day on the south coast followed by tournament football in the fading midsummer light – doesn’t sound too bad, does it? A lively, modern city with a strong connection to the sea. It's been a major seaport for the UK for centuries and is famous for many things including the departure of the doomed Titanic on her maiden passenger voyage. The historic coastal town has an abundance of activities, events, places to shop, eat and socialise, as well as a fascinating history to explore.

Thousands of Northern Ireland fans are set to create a festival atmosphere at St Mary’s Stadium as their team makes its debut at a major tournament. Kenny Shiels’ side overcame Ukraine in April’s Play-Offs to secure their place among the elite and though they were the lowest-ranked side to qualify, the size and passion of their support could inspire some surprises when the action is underway.

Northern Ireland fans took over France for the men’s UEFA European Championships in 2016 – just ask Will Grigg – and won’t be short of noise, while Norway will also be looking for a strong start as they seek a third UEFA Women’s European Championship trophy.

Runners-up in 2017, the entertaining Danes will be eager to go one better this time around and what better way to signal their intent than with a victory over Martina Voss-Tecklenburg’s star-studded outfit? The smart surroundings of the Brentford Community Stadium provide an ideal backdrop to kick off your Friday evening in style.

The home of Premier League new boys Brentford, the stadium will also stage Germany’s fixture against Spain in what is being coined the group of death. Denmark and Spain then face off on Matchday three before fans have the chance to take in a quarter-final at the same 17,000 capacity venue.
