The Football Association have today (August 29) submitted its official bid to stage the 2021 UEFA Women’s European Championships in England and one of the chosen venues in their bid is the ABAX Stadium.

The FA’s decision to submit its bid follows England Women’s successful Euro 2017 campaign in the Netherlands which saw the Lionesses reach the semi-finals, generating a record peak audience of four million TV viewers in the UK.

The bid proposes a country-wide spread of host cities and stadia of varying capacities with Wembley Stadium earmarked to stage the tournament’s final in July 2021, a year after hosting the equivalent final for the men’s tournament.
