Switzerland to host Women's Euro 2025

The 2025 Women’s European Championships will take place in Switzerland, UEFA has announced

There were four applications to host the tournament: France, Poland and Switzerland, with a joint bid from Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden. Sixteen teams will compete, with nine host cities named in the Swiss bid.

Following a year's delay due to the pandemic, the 13th Women's European Championship took place in England last July. The host nation won its first European title, beating Germany 2-1 in the final at Wembley with a winning goal in extra time.

Belgium’s Red Flames made their second appearance at the tournament in 2022. They went one better than in their previous competition, held in the Netherlands, surviving the group stage before being knocked out in the quarter-finals by Sweden.

The announcement of the host nation was made after a meeting of UEFA’s Executive Committee in Lisbon. Qualifying matches will start next spring, after the conclusion of the inaugural Women’s Nations League.
