Together for women’s football – together for Europe

The Women’s EURO 2025 in the Nordics is set to be the biggest UEFA Women’s EURO edition of the tournament, with more than 800.000 tickets available for sale and with a strong vibe of togetherness.

Dette er en felles pressemelding fra det norske, svenske og danske og finske fotballforbundet

The date for UEFA to announce the host for the WEURO 2025 was set to January 25th. UEFA has now informed all bidders of a postponement. The decision regarding hosting of the tournament will instead be made in early April, with the exact date still to be communicated.

The football associations of the Nordic countries of Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden submitted the bid for the WEURO 2025 on October 12th. The four capital cities of Copenhagen, Stockholm, Oslo, and Helsinki, together with one additional city from each of the four countries - Odense, Göteborg, Trondheim and Tampere - are suggested as host cities. Bids from France, Switzerland and Poland have also been submitted to UEFA.

Since submitting the bid in October, the associations have been involved in dialogue and discussions with UEFA regarding the content of the bid. The associations have experienced the dialogue with UEFA so far as positive and constructive and see the current postponement as a great opportunity to further tailor the bid to UEFA’s needs. The following months also be used for planning for a potential appointment in April, with a quick roll-out of the project organization and start-up of all projects.
