This summer's tournament in England is going to be huge!

In fact, it is on track to surpass the previous best attendance record for a Women's Euros, which stands at 240,045 in 2017.

The Championship was originally set to be staged in 2021, but was put back a year because of coronavirus.

This is the 13th edition of the Uefa Women's Championship and it will all be shown live on the BBC.

When does the 2022 Women's European Championship start?

The tournament kicked off on, Wednesday, July 6, when England beat Austria 1-0 at Old Trafford in front of a record crowd in the competition's history.

How can I watch?

BBC is the place for the Women's Euros, with all England and Northern Ireland matches live on BBC One. All 31 matches will be on the BBC iPlayer and BBC Sport website.

Which teams have qualified for Women's Euro 2022?

The 16 teams involved at the finals are Austria, Belgium, Denmark, England (hosts), Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, Italy, Holland (holders), Northern Ireland, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.

Portugal replaced Russia following the latter's exclusion due to the invasion of Ukraine.

What are the groups?

  • Group A: England, Austria, Norway, Northern Ireland

  • Group B: Germany, Denmark, Spain, Finland

  • Group C: Netherlands, Sweden, Portugal, Switzerland

  • Group D: France, Italy, Belgium, Iceland

What are the fixtures and kick-off times?

Who are the reigning champions?

Holland won the last tournament in 2017 and will be among the favourites next summer, along with Germany, France, Spain, Sweden and hosts England. Additionally, Denmark were the runners-up five years ago and have significant pedigree in the women's game, while Norway have been in six finals, winning the competition twice, and Italy are improving.

Who has the best record in the tournament?

Germany have been by far the most dominant team historically and have won a record eight European titles (out of a possible 12). England reached the semi-finals in 2017 and were beaten finalists in both 2009 and 1984.

What is the latest news?

By Tom Garry

Sarina Wiegman, England's head coach, emphasised the significance of a winning start as the hosts' hugely anticipated Euros campaign kicked off with a slender but valuable victory over Austria in front of a competition-record crowd of 68,871 at Old Trafford

Bidding to win their first major international trophy, England notched up a seventh consecutive win thanks to Arsenal forward Beth Mead's early goal but the relatively nervy nature of their victory will not have struck fear into their strongest European rivals.

England were below their best. In tournament football, though, victories are a priceless currency and Wiegman, who lifted the title five years ago with her home country, Netherlands, said: "The first game in a tournament, it's so important to win.

"A good start helps, it gives confidence to the team. We also had some hard moments in the game and we got through."

What will have made the rest of the continent sit up and take notice was the vastness of the home support. The cacophony of noise provided an atmosphere not seen here for a women’s football fixture since the 2012 Olympics, and the intensity felt worlds apart from the 2005 Euros, the last time England hosted. The build-up of eager fans outside the stadium several hours before kick-off gave an early hint of the excitable mood, the team bus was greeted with real fervour by deep lines of waiting supporters, and the sold-out crowd obliterated the competition’s previous largest attendance, when 41,301 watched the 2013 final in Sweden.

What are the best odds?

  • Spain 3/1

  • England 9/2

  • France 5/1

  • Holland 5/1

  • Sweden 6/1

  • Germany 7/1

  • Norway 14/1

  • Denmark 28/1

  • Italy 28/1

  • Switzerland 50/1

  • Austria 66/1

  • Belgium 100/1

  • Portugal 100/1

  • Iceland 100/1

  • Finland 250/1

  • Northern Ireland 250/1

What venues will be used?

Brighton's Community Stadium, St Mary's, Stadium MK, Brentford Community Stadium, Bramall Lane, Leigh Sports Village, New York Stadium, Manchester Academy Stadium, Old Trafford and Wembley.

Overall there are 10 stadiums across nine host cities.

The cities are set to be "transformed", partly thanks to the fact that Arts Council England has awarded £800k to the Euros to run an arts and cultural programme alongside the tournament, funded via the National Lottery.

Tournament organisers have faced criticism for their choice of venues, with Man City's Academy stadium holding just 7,000 fans at capacity.

Where will the final be played?

Wembley Stadium on July 31.
