Wednesday 19 May 2021 15:30

With all 16 teams now confirmed for UEFA Women’s Euro 2022, a major ticketing roadmap and legacy programme has been unveiled to illustrate how a record-breaking tournament that has the power to inspire the next generation of players and fans, will be delivered on home soil.

With over 700,000 tickets available across the 10 venues in nine host cities, an unprecedented number of fans will be able to experience the biggest women’s European sport event ever from 6 - 31 July 2022. The ambition is to set a record attendance for a UEFA Women’s Euro fixture [currently 41,301, 2013 final] at the tournament’s opening game at Old Trafford on Wednesday 6 July 2022.

Next summer’s celebration of football sees tickets ranging from £5 to £50, with over half a million tickets available for £25 or less, ensuring the UEFA Women’s Euro 2022 is an accessible event for all. The tournament will see a family of four [two adults and two children] able to watch some of the world’s best players from just £30.

The first chance supporters will have to apply for tickets is on 13 July 2021. Fans can register their interest now at

The nine Host Cities and 10 match venues are all playing a vital role in establishing the continued growth of women’s and girls’ football in England and, as next summer gets closer, the Host Cities are also united in the ambition to provide a blueprint for future UEFA Women’s Euro tournaments.

As part of their legacy, Manchester and Trafford will grow the number of female-friendly clubs and establish a club network providing playing opportunities for women and girls of all ages and abilities. Women and girls from under-presented communities will be welcomed to football, and off the pitch, an increase in females in administrative roles will shine a light on female leaders and volunteers within the game across the region.

These pledges will lead to an increased number of female coaches registered and actively coaching female teams across Manchester and Trafford from 20% to 30%. 400 female activators will be upskilled to further support the game, with an increase in the number of FA-qualified female match officials, progressing from 10% of Manchester FA Match Officials being female to 20%. Participants will be welcomed to double the number of female-friendly clubs in Manchester and Trafford, which will help support an increase in the number of players aged 16 and over in Manchester and Trafford by 20% by 2024 which includes players in Cheshire FA clubs.
