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.

16 nations take part in this year’s tournament which will be played out across England, with nine venues playing host to 31 games including Brighton & Hove, London, Manchester, Milton Keynes, Rotherham, Sheffield, Southampton, Trafford and Wigan & Leigh.
To mark the occasion of 100 days to go until the tournament starts, organisers launched an eye-catching giant table-football installation featuring 9ft tall female footballers in Carnaby Street, London, today.
The installation features players representing the top-seeded team in each group (England, Germany, Netherlands and France) and will be in situ until 10 April.
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. We wanted to make a bold statement and the installation in Carnaby Street is evident of that. I would encourage anyone who has not already got a ticket to snap them up soon, especially as we are expecting all the available tickets for several matches including all England games and the Final to be purchased soon after going on sale.”
UEFA Women’s EURO England 2022 brings the tournament back to England for the first time since 2005. Tickets are priced from £5 - £50, with a family of four [two adults and two children] able to watch some of the world’s best players from just £30 or £45 for England games, a semi-final or the final.
