Nine venues have been revealed as host stadiums for matches at the Women's 2021 European Championships in England.

It is not yet known which ground will stage the opening fixture of the tournament, which will feature The Lionesses.

The tournament kicks off on July 7, with 15 teams joining England, who have already qualified because of their status as hosts.

Baroness Sue Campbell, the FA's director of women's football, said: "The performance of the Lionesses this summer engaged the nation and helped to generate significant momentum in the women's game. 

"Looking ahead, hosting a home EURO in 2021 offers a huge opportunity for us to continue to push the profile of women's football and to inspire more women and girls to get involved.

"The confirmation of these nine venues is an important milestone for us as a host nation on our journey towards the final tournament in July 2021.

"I am confident the selected cities and stadia will allow hundreds of thousands of fans across the country to attend matches and will also help to deliver an atmosphere befitting a home European Championship to the nation."
