Women’s Euro 2022: 140,000 tickets already sold for tournament

Fans have purchased 53,000 tickets for final at Wembley.

5 August 2021 PA
  • Over 700,000 tickets available across ten venues in England
  • Fans from 68 countries, with 47 per cent female, have already purchased tickets

Uefa, European soccer's governing body, has announced that over 140,000 tickets have already been sold for next summer’s England-hosted Women’s European Championship.

That includes 53,000 for the final that is set to be held at Wembley Stadium on 31st July.

The figures are from the pre-sale window that closes on 9th August. The draw for the tournament takes place on 28th October, when a public ballot application window will open and tickets will then go on general sale in mid-February.

Supporters from 68 countries, with 47 per cent female, have already purchased tickets for one or more of the 31 matches.

The tournament, which had originally been due to take place this summer but was rescheduled due to the coronavirus pandemic, will have over 700,000 tickets available across the ten venues, with prices ranging from UK£5 (US$7) to UK£50 (US$70).

England’s campaign is to begin with the tournament opener at Old Trafford on 6th July, and they will subsequently play group matches at Brighton’s Amex Stadium on 11th July and then Southampton’s St Mary’s Stadium four days later.

It is on course to be a record-breaking tournament, with the current highest attendance for a Women’s Euro fixture set at 41,301 for the 2013 final between Germany and Norway in Solna.

The current European record for a women’s game was set at Wembley in 2012 when 80,203 attended the Olympic soccer final between the United States and Japan.

Uefa’s chief of women’s soccer Nadine Kessler said in a statement on the governing body’s official website: “We are incredibly excited by the response of fans to the Women’s Euro 2022 ticket pre-sale.

“With interest coming from fans across the globe it shows how European women’s football is of international significance. These numbers a year out are unheard of in women’s sport in Europe and it is just the start – I encourage everyone to get their tickets now and help us make the Women’s Euro to not only be a record-breaking event but a sell-out event.

“We cannot wait to have full stadia and fans showing their hearts for our European heroes.”

Uefa say a 'robust refund policy will be in place if fixtures are postponed, cancelled, have reduced capacity or a change of venue is introduced due to the Covid-19 pandemic'.
