This summer, England will host the UEFA Women’s EURO 2022 Championship for the second time overall, and for the first time since 2005 that the tournament has been held in England.


The action is set to get underway on July 6 as England faces Austria in the opening match of the tournament at Old Trafford in Manchester.


The various matches of the tournament are set to take place across the length of the country at ten different stadiums spread across eight different English cities.

Despite this, there are some selections that haven’t gone down well with fans and players alike because of the smaller capacities that are available.


There is a quick look at each venue taken by The Sportsrola, which focuses on the stadium’s size, location, and if it’s been used for major sporting events in the past.

As UEFA’s most controversial choice to host the upcoming competition, the Academy Stadium in Manchester came under intense scrutiny due to its reduced capacity of only 4,700 for the tournament, which was a significant impediment to its selection as a host venue.

Having been described as “embarrassing” and “disrespectful” by Iceland international Sara Bjork Gunnarsdottir following its inclusion as a host venue, the stadium will play host to three Group D clashes in October.
