Old Trafford ready to play part in UEFA Women's EURO
Manchester United today confirmed that the club remains ready to play its part in hosting UEFA Women’s EURO matches in 2022, following UEFA’s decision to postpone the tournament from the summer of 2021 to July 2022.
The FA and United had previously announced that Old Trafford was going to host the opening fixture of the 13th edition of tournament in 2021, however the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has had a knock-on impact on the scheduling of the UEFA national team competition schedule.
