Brentford Community Stadium will host four UEFA Women’s EURO 2021 matches, including a quarter-final on 22 July, with Wembley hosting the final, in what promises to be a record-breaking edition of the European tournament next summer.
England will play the opening match at Old Trafford on 7 July 2021. Wembley Stadium will host the showpiece final on 1 August, meaning the venue is hosting back-to-back men’s and women’s European Championship finals in 2020 and 2021.
Brentford Community Stadium is one of ten grounds which will stage UEFA Women’s EURO 2021 matches next summer and Councillor Steve Curran, Leader of London Borough of Hounslow Council, warmly welcomed this morning’s news: “Football’s coming home to Hounslow. As Leader of Hounslow Council I am thrilled to welcome this tournament to our borough. It’s very exciting to be chosen for such high-profile games and Brentford FC’s brand-new stadium will provide a fantastic venue. I look forward to meeting players and supporters alike during the tournament. Now, let’s rally behind the Lionesses!”
As tournament hosts, Phil Neville’s Lionesses qualify automatically, and after beginning their campaign at Old Trafford, will complete their group stage fixtures in front of home crowds at two Premier League venues – Brighton & Hove’s Community Stadium and St. Mary’s Stadium in Southampton, making the choice of Brentford’s new stadium even more significant.
Now in its 13th edition, the UEFA Women’s EURO 2021 is poised to be the biggest women’s EURO to date, with over 700,000 tickets available to fans and extensive coverage of every game of the tournament available on free-to-air television, radio and online.
