It’s understandably a year late, but our enthusiasm for hosting UEFA Women’s EURO 2022 has not been affected. In fact, I believe the delay has energised us even further.
With under a year to go until the tournament gets underway, this report highlights what we can achieve with a continued focus on capitalising on the opportunities offered by UEFA Women’s EURO 2022 and importantly how we can measure our success.
Our aim is twofold: to deliver a record-breaking tournament and to leave a tangible legacy to grow the women’s game. By inspiring fans at home and abroad, and by committing to provide playing opportunities to girls in every school and club across the country, I am confident we can deliver on both aims.
Our confidence is built on the passion with which our Host Cities are seizing the opportunity to shine a light on women’s and girls’ football and build a new generation of players, coaches, referees and fans.
In turn, we want to see the amazing work of the Host Cities radiate nationwide as part of our wider strategy to ensure a positive and sustainable future for women’s and girls’ football in England.
Baroness Sue Campbell DBE, The FA’s Director of Women’s Football.
