Sheffield UEFA Women’s EURO 2022 Fan Parties

Sheffield is all set for its biggest WEURO2022 celebration yet, as the city prepares to welcome England’s Lionesses for the tournament’s first Semi-Final fixture, at Bramall Lane on Tuesday 26 July.

  • Fan Party to open at earlier time of 12pm
  • Activities extended to Peace Gardens
  • Large screen on Devonshire Green will show live BBC broadcast of the Semi-Final at 8pm

After topping Group A and winning a tense quarter-final clash against Spain, the Lionesses will play in Sheffield, against Sweden, to a sold-out stadium of more than 30,000 people.

Pre-match build-up will include Sheffield’s most exciting Fan Party yet – extended from Devonshire Green to include the Peace Gardens to allow more people to get involved, and starting at the earlier time of 12pm.

A large screen will also be showing the live BBC broadcast of the game at 8pm on Devonshire Green so that the city can come together to watch the action.

The WEURO2022 cultural programme will also be brought to life during the Fan Party with UK Centre for Carnival Arts bringing football inspired costumes parading the city centre, and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra putting on pop-up performances of the WEURO2022 anthem.

Fan Walk Road Closures
