The Women’s European Championship finals will now take place between July 6 and 31, 2022.
The PA news agency understands that the new dates for the tournament in England, originally due to be played in the summer of 2021, have now been agreed.
An announcement on the new dates for the Women’s Euros – originally scheduled to be opened at Old Trafford on July 7th next year – is expected to arrive following a meeting of the Uefa Executive Committee via video on Thursday 23 April, where they will discuss the impact of the coronavirus outbreak on European football.
The decision to put the tournament back came after the men’s Euro 2020 tournament was postponed until 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The move means there will now be some overlap with the Commonwealth Games, with the Women’s Euro finals now due to take place on the first Sunday of the multi-sport event, which is being hosted by Birmingham.
The decision to delay will also assist with the completion of the qualifying campaign. Matches due to be played in June have been postponed.
Games will also be played at Bramall Lane in Sheffield, Brentford, Brighton, Leigh Sports Village, the Manchester City Academy Stadium, Milton Keynes, Rotherham and Southampton.
