About UEFA Women’s Euro 2017

The UEFA European Women’s Championship is the most prestigious national team competition for women in Europe. It's played every four years, over two seasons, alternating with the European qualifying competition for the FIFA Women’s World Cup.

The current competition format includes a preliminary round of mini-tournaments, followed by a qualifying group stage of home-and-away matches. The seven group winners and the best runner-up progress to the final tournament. The other six runners-up go into the play-offs to qualify for the remaining three places, bringing the total number of finalists to twelve. The final tournament sees three groups of four teams, the top two from each group and the two best third-placed teams going into the quarter-finals, from where the competition is a straight knockout.

The 2017 competition brings 16 teams together across seven venues and will take place from 16 July to 6 August 2017 in the Netherlands.
