Euro 2013 Football Championships

The 2013 European Championships in women's soccer/football will be played this summer around Sweden, kicking off on July 10.

The initial matches will be played in 6 host cities: Växjö, Kalmar, Halmstad, Norrköping, Linköping and Gothenburg, leading the final on July 28 at the national stadium, Stockholm's Friends Arena.

  • Stockholm hosted the final of the UEFA Women's Football Championships on Sunday, with over 41,000 in the stadium to watch Germany beat Norway one nil.

    It was an attendance record for the championships, which have been seen by many here in Sweden as a success. TV viewing figures have been high and many stadiums hosting the games around the country were sold-out.

    SVT/Sweden's sports arenas are struggling to keep up with the public demand for tickets to the 2013 European Football Championships in Sweden.

    In the group stage Sweden's women's team played for a sold-out crowd of 16,500, but will now have a quarter-final match in a stadium that holds less than half as many supporters.

    Sweden will go through to the Women's Euro 2013 quarter-finals as group winners after an impressive 3-1 victory over Italy in the seasisde town of Halmstad on Tuesday night.

    The hosts made a breakthrough early in the second half thanks to an own goal by Italy's Raffaella Manieri, before Sweden's Lotta Schelin and Josefine Oqvist gave the team a comfortable lead.

  • Despite two penalties for Sweden in the second half, the hosts did not manage to win against Denmark in the opening game of the Uefa Women's European Championships Wednesday evening.

    The match ended 1-1, after both star striker Lotta Schelin as well as forward Kosovare Asllani missed their penalties.

    When the 2013 Uefa Women's European Championships kick off in Gothenburg tonight, expectations on the Swedish team will be high.

    "Anything but a semi-final would be a fiasco," writes sports columnist Johan Esk in the Dagens Nyheter newspaper.

    Sweden coach Pia Sundhage described her team's performance in a 4-1 win against England as "a good dress rehearsal that gives us self-confidence," ahead of the start of next week's European Football Championships which take place on Swedish soil.  

  • Hosts Sweden play their final Euro 2013 warm-up game against England in Ljungskile this evening. Coach Pia Sundhage's starting eleven will give an indicator of her selection thoughts for next Wednesday's football tournament opener against Denmark in Gothenburg.

  • Football fans in Stockholm are morning the loss of an iconic stadium today - at least in the southern part of the city, where the club Hammarby is based. Yesterday, the team played their last game at Söderstadion, the 15,000-capacity venue where they've played their home games for nearly 50 years. The team will now be moving to a stadium double the size just next door. But many are saying things will never be the same.

  • on the eve of euro 2013

    The Swedish national women’s soccer team will be taking part in the upcoming European championships here as the second highest ranked squad in Europe.

    The latest rankings from the international football organization FIFA put Pia Sundhage’s team as number five in the world. Topping the list is the United States, the team Pia Sundhage coached to two Olympic gold medals.

    World number two is Germany, regarded as the favorite for the European title. Euro 2013 will be held at seven venues around Sweden, beginning on July 10, with the final at Stockholm’s Friends Arena on July 28.
