Women's Euros: Dates, teams, venues & more

The countdown for the next Women's Euros is underway with the 2025 tournament set to take place in Switzerland.

England are the defending champions after famously beating Germany 2-1 after extra time in the 2022 final on home soil and the Lionesses will be among the favourites to defend their title.

Qualifying for the finals will begin in February and the 2025 tournament, which will be the 14th edition of the Women's Euros, promises to be bigger and better than ever.

Women's Euro 2025 Dates 

The next Women's Euros is due to get underway on Wednesday 2nd July 2025 and a total of 31 matches will be played up to and including the final, which is scheduled for Sunday 27th July.

A total of 16 teams will participate at the finals, with the qualification for the tournament taking place from 1st February to 30th November 2024.

Women's Euro 2025 Hosts

Switzerland were confirmed as the hosts for Women's Euro 2025 after they beat off competition from France, Poland and a collective Scandinavian bid from Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland.

This will be the first time that Switzerland has hosted a major women's international football tournament, but they do have experience in the men's game, staging the 1954 World Cup and jointly hosting the 2008 Euros with Austria.

Women's Euro 2025 Venues

The following eight venues will be used for the Women's Euros in 2025.

  • St. Jakob-Park - Basel, capacity 38,512
  • Stadion Wankdorf - Bern, capacity 31,783
  • Stade de Geneve - Geneva, capacity 30,084
  • Letzigrund - Zurich, capacity 26,104
  • Kybunpark - St. Gallen, capacity 19,694
  • Swissporarena - Lucerne, capacity 16,800
  • Stade Tourbillon - Sion, capacity 16,263
  • Stockhorn Arena - Thun, capacity 10,398

Women's Euro 2025 Teams

Just as at the last two editions of the Women's Euros, a total of 16 teams will participate at the 2025 finals.

As hosts, Switzerland are already guaranteed their place at what will be their third Women's Euros after they previously qualified in 2017 and 2022.

The other 15 places at the tournament will be decided during the qualification campaign.

Women's Euro 2025 Qualifying

Qualification for the Women's Euros will see the nations competing split into three different leagues based on how each team has performed during the 2023/24 UEFA Women's Nations League.

The top 16 teams from the Nations League will be put into League A, the next best 16 into League B and the remainder into League C.

From there the teams will be split into groups of four and they will play home and away against the other teams in their group.

In League A, the eight teams that finish in the top two of their groups will secure automatic qualification for the Women's Euros, with the teams that finish third and fourth going into a play-off against the winners and three best-ranked runners-up from League C.

In the other half of the play-offs, the four group winners from League B, as well as the two best-ranked runners-up will be drawn into six ties against the remaining League B runners up and the four third-placed teams.

The winners of those first round matches from both halves of the play-offs will progress to round two where they will be drawn into seven ties, with the winners from each tie progressing through to the Women's Euros.

Women's Euro 2025 Favourites

England are the defending champions and are sure to be amongst the favourites to retain their title after they also reached the final of the 2023 Women's World Cup.

Spain beat the Lionesses in that World Cup final and they are also likely to be among the main protagonists come the business end of the Women's Euros.

They may have been beaten in the 2022 final, but Germany are the most successful nation in Women's Euros history and they will be chasing a record-extending ninth title in Switzerland.

France, Sweden and 2017 champions the Netherlands are some of the other teams that will expect to mount a serious challenge and, with the last two editions of the Women's Euros having been won by the hosts, Switzerland will be hoping they can spring a surprise on home soil.
