UEFA Women’s EURO 2022 today announced plans for its free National Roadshow that will showcase the best of football, fitness and music, providing families, fans and those that are yet to experience football with the opportunity to get involved in an unmissable tournament.
The family and local community-focused Roadshow will travel 800 miles, making 10 stops across 43 days, arriving at Hove Promenade on Saturday, June 25 and finishing on July 2 in London – just a few days before the tournament’s opening match at Old Trafford.
As the Women’s EURO draws closer, organisers are aiming to inspire more communities, particularly young people and families, to encourage them to get involved in the biggest European women’s sport event in history.
The schedule includes visiting each of the tournament’s nine Host Cities, including Brighton & Hove.
The UEFA Women’s EURO 2022 Roadshow, partnered with the BBC, is part of a wider drive to introduce new fans to the women’s game to create a lasting legacy for women’s football.
The free Roadshow will offer visitors to Brighton & Hove an introduction to football, with a chance to learn new football skills and tricks as well as try matchday presenting and interviewing in a special BBC studio. Featuring live music from local artists and a showpiece football pitch, alongside the opportunity to get a picture with the trophy itself, each event will provide a variety of fun for all the family.
Additionally, there will be lots of exciting opportunities to meet legends from the women’s game, take part in interactive challenges and find out more about getting involved in grassroots football, the tournament, and how to purchase tickets.
Councillor Martin Osborne, co-chair of Brighton & Hove City Council‘s Tourism, Equalities, Communities and Culture Committee, said: “The Roadshow is going to be a fantastic event for the community to come together and celebrate a huge moment in football.
“There is a real excitement here ahead of the tournament, so it’s great that this event will not only provide residents with an opportunity to get involved but encourage people to come into Brighton & Hove and enjoy the entertainment.”
