A free national Roadshow in conjunction with UEFA Women’s EURO 2022 that will showcase the best of football, fitness and music, will arrive in Southampton this summer.
The family and local community-focused Roadshow will travel 800 miles, making 10 stops across 43 days, arriving at Southampton on June 18th and finishing on July 2nd in London – just a few days before the tournament’s opening match at Old Trafford.
As the Women’s EURO draws closer, organisers are aiming to inspire more communities, particularly young people and families, to encourage them to get involved in the biggest European women’s sport event in history.
The schedule includes visiting each of the tournament’s nine Host Cities, Brighton & Hove, London, Manchester, Milton Keynes, Rotherham, Sheffield, Southampton, Trafford and Wigan & Leigh, where fans will be able to watch some of the best players in the world compete at a local stadium. The additional tenth stop will be at Elland Road, Leeds ahead of England Women’s friendly against Netherlands on 24 June. Full details of the route and timings are available here.
The UEFA Women’s EURO 2022 Roadshow, partnered with the BBC, demonstrates the scale and importance of this summer’s event and is part of a wider drive to introduce new fans to the women’s game to create a lasting legacy for women’s football – a key focus for UEFA Women’s EURO 2022.
The free Roadshows will offer visitors to Southampton an introduction to football, with a chance to learn new football skills and tricks as well as try matchday presenting and interviewing in a special BBC studio. Featuring live music from local artists and a showpiece football pitch, alongside the opportunity to get a picture with the trophy itself, each event will provide a variety of fun for all the family.
Additionally, there will be lots of exciting opportunities to meet legends from the women’s game, take part in interactive challenges and find out more about getting involved in grassroots football, the tournament, and how to purchase tickets.
