Tickets to UEFA Women’s EURO England 2022 are officially on sale with all fans of football, women’s sport and big events encouraged to get involved in what promises to be the biggest women’s sporting event in European history.
Having been selected as one of eight host cities, Rotherham will see three group stage games and one quarter final.
Footballing powerhouses France and Italy will lock horns at AESSEAL New York Stadium on 10th July 2022, with Les Blues taking on Belgium here four days later, before Group D is wrapped up with a tie between Iceland and France.
Saturday 23 July will see Rotherham host a prestigious Quarter-Final.
Fans in Rotherham will be able to watch some of the best players in the world compete, including stars of the French and Italian teams who are among a group of teams expected to go far in the tournament.
Rotherham United Chairman Tony Stewart said: “With the world’s best players on display and a record number of tickets on offer for matches, the atmosphere for Women’s Euro 22 promises to be something special. The tournament always delivers great football moments, and the stage is set for Rotherham to provide fans with an opportunity to experience those first-hand.”
Tickets are available for games in Rotherham and prices range from £5 to £30. A family of four can attend a game at the AESSEAL New York Stadium for £30.
More than 350,000 tickets, of the over 700,000 available, have already sold for the tournament in the pre-sale, public ballot and group bookings stage. It means UEFA Women’s EURO 2022 is set to be a record-breaking event already, beating the previous tournament record of 240,000 set at Netherlands EURO 2017.
Rotherham Council’s Cabinet Member for Social Inclusion, Cllr Dave Sheppard, said: “I am thrilled that tickets are now on general sale for the four games being played at Rotherham United’s own New York Stadium. It’s a great chance for people of all ages, from those who are season ticket holders or those who have never seen a live game before, to get involved.
“The Council is working alongside a number of partners to encourage more women and girls to get involved in football and other sports to be active and to gain the confidence and skills to become leaders of the future. The UEFA Women’s EURO 2022 is a fantastic starting point for these activities to begin and I encourage everyone to get involved.”
Chris Bryant, Tournament Director for UEFA Women’s EURO 2022, added: “This is it now. We are just 100 days out from what promises to be a huge, history making spectacle for women’s football.
“We have made a great start already regarding ticket sales. It’s a case now of putting all the final plans in place and generating the excitement around a major sporting event that England has done so well previously.
“This is an opportunity to open up women’s football to new audiences.”
