UEFA today unveiled a brand-new identity for UEFA Women's EURO 2022, marking 500 days until the start of the tournament, for which Southampton is a host city.
The 2022 edition in England promises to be the biggest women's football event in UEFA history, deserving of the fresh, open and contemporary look that reflects the strength, diversity and ever-growing popularity of the game.
Originally scheduled for 2021, the tournament was, like UEFA EURO 2020, postponed by a year. This guarantees increased exposure for women's football in a summer without other major football events.
As well as the new logo, extensive coverage of all 31 matches at UEFA Women's EURO 2022 will feature on free-to-air television, radio and online as 16 nations compete to be crowned European champions.
This will ensure anyone, from committed or curious fans to the next generation of stars, can tune into the tournament and be part of the excitement.
UEFA chief of women's football, Nadine Kessler, said: "We’re thrilled to share this new identity for the UEFA Women's EURO 2022.
"This new branding brings a fresh look and eye-catching feel for the tournament as we begin the countdown to next summer. We can't wait to see this emblem across host cities, stadiums and television when the action begins in 500 days' time.
"By moving the competition to 2022, we guaranteed that the biggest women's sports event in Europe receives the exclusive platform it deserves."
The opening match, on Wednesday 6th July 2022, will take place at Old Trafford (capacity 76,000), with the final on Sunday 31st July to be played at Wembley Stadium (90,000), meaning England's national arena will host back-to-back men's and women's UEFA EURO finals in 2021 and 2022 respectively.
In another sign of the growing status of women’s competitions, the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) programme will be used throughout the finals for the first time.
UEFA's new ticketing portal is now open for fans to register for early access to tickets and stay up to date on all the latest information ahead of next year's finals.
