The draw has been made the major football event of next summer, which will have games at our stadium. Fans are already gearing up for another huge summer of football with more than 140,000 tickets sold for the UEFA Women’s EURO England 2022. Four matches at the tournament will be played at our new stadium and these have now been confirmed.
As can be seen above, Brentford will host matches on 8, 12 and 16 July in Group B of the event next summer. Denmark, Germany and Spain will all play two matches at our stadium. We will also host a Quarter Final tie, that may involve England if they finish second in Group A, on 21 July.
The ticket ballot application window is now officially open for those that want to be there and former England captain Rio Ferdinand, who racked up 81 caps for the Three Lions, is backing the summer football bonanza to blaze a trail. The public ballot will close on 16 November and remaining tickets will go on general sale from mid-February 2022. The showcase final takes place at Wembley on July 31 and with the women’s game profile continuing to sky-rocket, the total attendance record for a UEFA Women’s EURO – currently 240,045 for Netherlands 2017 – is expected to be more than doubled.
Rio said: “Fans shouldn’t miss out on their chance to be at the biggest women’s EURO ever and enter the ticket ballot now. I can’t wait to witness Wembley stadium for the final – its due to be the biggest European crowd for a women’s football match ever. It will definitely [bring about] more awareness of the women’s game.
"If girls out there get to a game or watch the tournament on TV (for free!) and think you know what, I want to play football, for fun or have aspirations to one day be an International footballer. Then amazing. Everyone deserves the chance to play.”
The tournament will take place up and down the country across nine English cities in ten stadiums including Old Trafford, St Mary’s and Stadium MK with the final at Wembley. The tournament, which is due to be the biggest women’s European sport event ever, will have over 700,000 tickets available across the ten venues, with prices ranging from £5 to £50. The opening match between England and Austria will take place at Old Trafford on 6 July 2022.
