St Mary's to play part in delivering record-breaking Women's Euro tournament


With all 16 teams now confirmed for UEFA Women’s EURO 2022, a major ticketing roadmap and legacy programme has been unveiled to illustrate how a record-breaking tournament that has the power to inspire the next generation of players and fans, will be delivered on home soil.

With over 700,000 tickets available across the 10 venues in nine host cities, an unprecedented number of fans will be able to experience the biggest women’s European sport event ever from 6-31 July 2022.

St Mary’s Stadium will welcome its first Group A fixture to coincide with Matchday 1 on Thursday 7 July 2022, which will be an opportunity to surpass the biggest crowd for a women’s World Cup Qualifier in April 2018 when 25,601 fans saw England play Wales.

The stadium will then host Matchday 2 on Monday 11 before hosting its final group stage fixture for Matchday 3 on Friday 15 July 2022.

Next summer’s celebration of football sees tickets ranging from £5 to £50, with over half a million tickets available for £25 or less, ensuring the UEFA Women’s EURO 2022 is an accessible event for all.

The tournament will see a family of four [two adults and two children] able to watch some of the world’s best players from just £30.

The first chance supporters will have to apply for tickets is on 13 July 2021, via the pre-sale, presented by Visa. To ensure this priority access, fans can register their interest by

Together with UEFA, as a nation and host a clear ambition is held to deliver the biggest women’s football event in UEFA history, which is used to inspire long-term, sustainable positive change in women’s and girls’ football.

The nine host cities and 10 match venues are all playing a vital role in establishing the continued growth of women’s and girls’ football in England and, as next summer gets closer, the host cities are also united in the ambition to provide a blueprint for future UEFA Women’s EURO tournaments.

As part of their legacy Southampton will launch clear and accessible opportunities and programmes for women and girls to play football where and how they wish. The Playmaker Award will be promoted to encourage women to take a first step in coaching football, and off the pitch, an increased number of FA-qualified female coaches and referees will be deployed where they are most needed to support the growth of the game for women and girls.

These pledges will lead to 50 primary and secondary schools offering equal access to football for girls in PE lessons by 2022. Double the number of FA-qualified female coaches and referees will officiate on the pitch, with 500 more women playing football in Southampton’s most deprived wards by creating sustainable recreational football opportunities.

The pre-sale period will run from 13 July until 10 August 2021. Fans can pre-register now by

The public ballot will open following the draw which takes place on 28 October 2021 live on BBC, with tickets going on general sale from mid-February 2022.

Although all are planning for full stadiums in summer 2022, 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 COVID.
