Sheffield is one of nine cities chosen to host games for the UEFA Women's Euro in 2022 and we’re honoured to be part of this prestigious competition. Set to be the biggest women’s European sport event ever, here in Sheffield we’ll have three group matches and a semi-final, all played at Bramall Lane, the home ground of Sheffield United FC.
The Sheffield fixtures will take place on Saturday 9 July, Wednesday 13 July, Sunday 17 July and Tuesday 26 July. All visitors to the city can be assured a warm welcome, with lots of exciting things to see, as well as great football to watch- so put the dates in your diary and get ready to be part of the party!

City Legacy of the UEFA Women's Euro
As part of the commitment to delivering the Women’s Euros, we’re committed to working with the FA and UEFA to further develop women’s and girl’s football in Sheffield. In the city, there are currently:
- 114 affiliated female teams in Host City
- 10 coaches in Host City (175 in County FA)
- 38 female referees in Host City
- 19 Wildcats providers
- 163 schools in a Girls’ Football School Partnership
- 56% of schools with equal access to football for girls in-curriculum, 32% extra-curricular
A legacy programme has been unveiled to illustrate how a record-breaking tournament has the power to build on this further and inspire the next generation of players and fans, all while being delivered on home soil.
As part of their legacy Sheffield will engage with over 90% of primary and secondary schools to offer girls-only football opportunities by 2024, leading to double the number of recreational opportunities through Wildcats and Premier League Kicks programmes. In addition, a range of female-only competitions across all ages will be launched.
These pledges will lead to at least 140 primary schools engaged in Girls’ Football School Partnerships by 2024. Furthermore, 50% more girls aged 5-to-11-year-olds will have a recreational opportunity within five miles of their homes, and off the pitch, double the number of female coaches and female officials will be recruited to drive the game forward. See the full Legacy Programme here.
Women and girls in Sheffield have shared their football skills, stories and smiles with us to celebrate the excitement and opportunities that the legacy programme will bring to the city: watch video online here.
