When is the Women’s Euro final 2022 taking place?

The final will be played on Sunday July 31, kicking off at 5pm UK time.

It will be the Lionesses' first appearance in a final since Euro 2009 - and, if they win, their first ever major trophy.

Their overall record has seen them win two out of seven semi-finals, going on to finish runners-up at Euro 1984 and 2009.

They exited the last three major tournaments - the 2015 and 2019 World Cups and Euro 2017 - at the semi-final stage.

Where is the Women's Euro final 2022 being held?

The 2022 final will take place at London's Wembley Stadium - the largest sports venue in the UK and the second-largest stadium in Europe, with 90,000 seats. 

Situated in the north-west of the city, it is instantly recognisable by its striking arch, which is 133 metres tall and sits above the north stand.

This will be the first Women's Euro final at Wembley.

It has previously hosted the 1966 World Cup final, Euro 1996, the 1948 Summer Olympics, and the 2015 Rugby World Cup, among other major events.

Will there be fan parties or fan zones for the final?

London Mayor Sadiq Khan announced there will be an increased fan zone provided for the final.

Free access will be provided for 7,000 fans in Trafalgar Square on July 31 - that's 2,000 more than the semi-final's screening capacity.

The event is first come, first served, and is standing only. No camping chairs are allowed, but people may bring a picnic blanket to sit on.

Fans are asked to register by 3pm on July 29 to receive the latest news and updates on the screening, but this does not guarantee entry.

Mr Khan said: "The atmosphere at tonight's fan party screening was electric and England is now within touching distance of the trophy.

"I'm so excited to once again bring Londoners and visitors together at Trafalgar Square this Sunday to help cheer the Lionesses to victory."

Fans in Manchester can watch the final for free at Piccadilly Gardens. The event is non-ticketed and all ages are welcome.
