With 100 days to go until UEFA Women’s EURO England 2022 kicks off, tickets have officially gone on sale today. And to mark the occasion, tournament organisers have unveiled giant women’s table football players on London’s iconic Carnaby Street, transforming the location into a giant foosball table.

The installation, featuring nine feet tall women’s players representing the top-seeded team in each group (England, Germany, Netherlands and France) suspended five metres above Carnaby Street, celebrates the scale and importance of UEFA Women’s EURO 2022 by repurposing the traditionally male-dominated table football game. It will be present from 28 March to 10 April.

16 nations are set to take part in this year’s tournament, which will be played out across England. 10 venues in nine cities will play host to 31 games including Brighton & Hove, London, Manchester, Milton Keynes, Rotherham, Sheffield, Southampton, Trafford and Wigan & Leigh.

More than 350,000 tickets of the over 700,000 available have already sold for the tournament in the pre-sale, public ballot and group bookings stage. It means UEFA Women’s EURO 2022 is set to be a record-breaking event already, beating the previous tournament record of 240,000 set at UEFA Women’s EURO 2017 in the Netherlands. 

Chris Bryant, Tournament Director for UEFA Women’s EURO 2022, added: “This is it now. We are just 100 days out from what promises to be a huge, history making spectacle for women’s football. 

“We have made a great start already regarding ticket sales. It’s a case now of putting all the final plans in place and generating the excitement around a major sporting event that England has done so well previously.

“This is an opportunity to open up women’s football to new audiences. We wanted to make a bold statement and the installation in Carnaby Street is evident of that. I would encourage anyone who has not already got a ticket to snap them up soon, especially as we are expecting all the available tickets for several matches including all England games and the Final to be purchased soon after going on sale.
