2022-07-03T14:04:16.114Z

The tournament, which takes place in England, starts next Wednesday, July 6 and will end on the 31st of that month. See all the matches from the group stage to the final



Everything is ready for the 2022 Women's Eurocup to start. After a year of waiting after UEFA postponed the competition for a year due to covid, the 16 qualified teams go to England to play the 13th edition of the continental tournament, which will begin next Wednesday, July 6, and will end on the 31st of that month with the final at Wembley.

Due to the expulsion of the Russian team by UEFA, its place has been filled by the Portuguese team, which completes the list of candidates to win the title.

Spain is singled out as one of the favorites for its star-studded squad, including 2021 Ballon d'Or winner Alexia Putellas.

However, Jorge Vilda's team will have to face the 'group of death' in which they have been drawn alongside Germany, Denmark and Finland.

The Germans are historically the most powerful team in Europe, winners of 8 of the last 10 European Championships.

In the last edition, in 2017, they broke their hegemony by falling in the quarterfinals against Denmark, finalist of that tournament and also a member of group B in which Spain is.

Jorge Vilda's men will debut against Finland on the first day on July 8 and will face Germany on the second day, on July 12, and Denmark on the third and final day, on the 16th.

Having been drawn in group B, Spain will face a rival that comes out of group A, which includes England, Austria, Norway and Northern Ireland.

The English reached the semifinals in the last edition and in this one they will have the public on their side from the first game.

The opening match of the tournament between England and Austria will be held at Old Trafford, where the sale of the 74,000 seats of the 'Theatre of Dreams' has been announced.

On the other side of the table, the teams from groups C and D will advance. In group C are Portugal, Switzerland, Sweden and the defending champions, the Netherlands.

D is made up of France, Italy, Belgium and Iceland.

Spain would not face any of these teams until a theoretical final, which will be held at Wembley Stadium in London.

In this table you can consult all the matches of the group stage:

The playoffs

The top 8 teams from the first phase will qualify for the knockout rounds, which start directly in the quarterfinals.

The first two of each group will face each other between July 20 and 23.

On the 31st of that month at six in the afternoon, peninsular time in Spain, the best two will play the final at Wembley.

the best stadiums

One of the issues that stands out the most in this edition of the European Championship will be the venues in which the matches will be played.

England is a country with some of the best stadiums in the world and several of them will host the tournament matches.

Old Trafford, the home of Manchester United with a capacity of 74,000 spectators, will be the opening stage of the competition on July 6 with the first match between England and Austria.

The final, how could it be otherwise in England, will be played at Wembley, where almost 90,000 people fit.

However, the tournament will also visit some more modest category stadiums such as the Leigh Sports Village, with capacity for 8,000 spectators, where the Manchester United women's team plays its matches, or the Manchester City Academy Stadium, the home field of Manchester City women's , where 4,700 people can enter.
