Members of the foundation’s U8's and U9's teams will be representing four of the leading nations at this summer’s UEFA Women’s EURO 2022 which take place in England.

Sheffield is one of nine cities across England that will play home to 31 UEFA Women’s EURO 2022 matches in just 26 action-packed days from 6-31 July.

A record number of fans are set to attend in person with a further 250 million across the world watching the action unfold on TV. It promises to be the biggest women’s European sporting event in history. 

Three Group Stage games will be played at Bramall Lane, home of Sheffield United, on Saturday 9 July (Holland v Sweden, KO 8pm), Wednesday 13 July (Sweden v Switzerland, KO 5pm) and Sunday 17 July (Switzerland v Netherlands, KO 5pm).
