The 2022 UEFA Women’s Euro tournament kicks off on 6 July in England. Originally set to take place last summer, the tournament’s 13th edition will feature 16 national teams competing for the title of Europe’s best.
This year’s tournament comes during a season packed full of women’s football competitions. The Africa Cup of Nations, Copa América Femenina, and the CONCACAF W Championship all run concurrently with the Euros.
Below is a list of every team participating in the 2022 UEFA Women’s Euro tournament. For a closer look at each team, click the country name to view a group-specific tournament preview.
- Austria (Group A): Austria can be a tough team to break down, but they’ll need to find the back of the net to escape Group A.
- Belgium (Group D): After topping their qualifying group, Belgium will look to make the most of their second Euro appearance.
- Denmark (Group B): The surprise of Euro 2017 was Denmark making it to the final, but they face a strong group stage this time around.
- England (Group A): A lot rides on Sarina Wiegman and the host nation, even if they haven’t lost a match since April 2021.
- Finland (Group B): Finland has an uphill battle in this year’s tournament with the third-lowest FIFA ranking.
- France (Group D): France has never gone beyond the Euro quarter-finals, but that stat could easily improve this year.
- Germany (Group B): Germany has appeared in the Euro finals on a record eight occasions. Can Alexandra Popp and company make it nine?
- Iceland (Group D): Iceland will have a tough task in Group D, but a recent string of wins could be the momentum they need at the women’s Euro.
- Italy (Group D): Italy made it to the quarter-finals of the 2019 World Cup. But this tournament might prove more difficult for Le Azzurre.
- Netherlands (Group C): Ex-Portland Thorns manager Mark Parsons will be put to the test as he tries to lead the 2017 champions to another win.
- Northern Ireland (Group A): As an underdog team, Northern Ireland will have nothing to lose as they try to prove themselves on Europe’s biggest stage.
- Norway (Group A): With players like Guro Reiten, Caroline Graham Hansen, and Ada Hegerberg, Norway fans have much to believe in this year.
- Portugal (Group C): Portugal will look to make the most of Euro 2022, taking the spot of a disqualified Russia.
- Spain (Group B): With not a lot of Euro success, Spain will look to capitalize on its recently improving form.
- Sweden (Group C): As one of the Euro 2022 favourites, Sweden hasn’t won the tournament since 1984.
- Switzerland (Group C): Switzerland hasn’t won a game in 2022, but the team will hope to turn that around in a group that contains the Netherlands and Sweden.
