UEFA Women's Championship


UEFA Women's Championship

The UEFA Women's Championship, held every fourth year, is the main competition in women's football (soccer) between national teams of the UEFA Confederation. The competition is the women's equivalent of the UEFA European Championship, and is sometimes called the Women's Euro or European Women's Football Championship.

The predecessor tournament to the UEFA Women's Championship began in the early 1980s, under the name "UEFA European Competition for Representative Women's Teams". With increasing popularity of women's football, the competition was given European Championship status by UEFA around 1990. Only the 1991 and 1995 editions have been used as European qualifiers for a World Cup; starting in 1999, the group system used in men's qualifiers was also used for women's national teams.

Six "UEFA Women's Championships" have taken place, preceded by 3 editions of the earlier "European Competition for Representative Women's Teams". The most recent holding of the competition was the 2005 Women's Euro, which took place in England from June 5 to June 19 2005.
