Women’s Euro 2022 fixtures and TV schedule: Groups, match dates, kick-off times, venues
International tournament football is once again upon us and the highly anticipated European Championship 2022 for women is now approaching.
The tournament, which runs from July 6 to 31, will take place in England, which will host the competition for the second time.
The Lionesses have genuine ambitions to win a first championship as they have looked much better since Sarina Wiegman took over as manager last year.
The Women’s Euro 2022 is now just around the corner and will run from July 6 to July 31
However, they will face fierce competition from the likes of Spain, France, Germany and the Netherlands, the latter of which emerged victorious at the previous European Championship in 2017.
England start the tournament on July 6 against Austria at Old Trafford, with the final set at Wembley at the end of the month.
With the tournament fast approaching, sports post takes you through the groups, programs and TV schedule.
Euro 2022 Groups
England, which hosted the tournament, was automatically placed in the Championships and placed in Group A.
The Lionesses will take on Norway, Austria and compatriots Northern Ireland in a group that is expected to win on Wiegman’s side without too much effort.
Tournament favorites Spain, meanwhile, are in the ‘Group of Death’ alongside Germany, 2017 finalists Denmark and Finland.
Spain, Denmark and Germany were no doubt dragged into the tournament’s ‘Group of Death’, while Portugal replaced Russia in Group C
England will take on Northern Ireland, who they have comfortably beaten twice in World Cup qualifiers
There was a change in Group C in May, with Russia being removed amid Vladimir Putin’s ongoing invasion of Ukraine and replaced by Portugal. They are joined by reigning champions the Netherlands, as well as Sweden and Switzerland.
Finally, we have Group D, where France is expected to prevail in first place.
- Group A: England, Austria, Norway, Northern Ireland
- Group B: Germany, Denmark, Spain, Finland
- Group C: Netherlands, Sweden, Portugal, Switzerland
- Group D: France, Italy, Belgium, Iceland
A total of 10 locations from nine different cities will be used during the tournament, with the final at Wembley.
England’s national stadium is already sold out, with some 90,000 fans to cram into Wembley in what will be a record attendance for the showpiece.
Meanwhile, Manchester United’s Old Trafford will host the opening game of the tournament between England and Austria, while another Premier League stadium at Southampton’s St Mary’s will also be used throughout.

The opening match of the tournament between England and Austria will take place at Old Trafford
However, there has been some noise around the disparity between the stadiums in use; there are two areas where less than 10,000 fans will be present.
The first is the 4,700-seat Academy Stadium, which will operate below full capacity due to UEFA’s standing ban. The second is the 8,100-seat Leigh Sports Village, which is hampered by the same restrictions.
Below are the 10 stadiums in full:
- Bramall Lane – capacity: 32,702
- Brentford Community Stadium – Capacity: 17,250

- Leigh Sports Village – Capacity: 8,100
