Women’s Euro Final 2022: Trafalgar Square to host 7,000 fans for England Lionesses’ historic final

England’s dazzling 4-0 win against Sweden in the UEFA Euro semi-final has earned them a place in the final on July 31 - and you can watch it amongst 7,000 other Lionesses fans in Trafalgar Square.

As Fran Kirby’s decisive shot put England 4-0 against Sweden in the UEFA Euro semi-final at Bramall Lane last night, the Lionesses secured their place in the final at Wembley Stadium.

This was the furthest that the women’s national team have gone in a major tournament since 2009 - as Lioness fever swept the nation.

Following the triumphant 4-0 win, the Sadiq Khan has announced that up to 7,000 football fans will be able to watch a screening of the Euros final at Trafalgar Square on Sunday, July 31.

This is the largest TV showing in London, with 2,000 more places than last night’s semi-final at Trafalgar Square.

The screening, which is free to attend, will be standing only, with accessible viewing space for wheelchairs available.

Spots will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis, although viewers are encouraged to register their interest online.

In celebration of the team’s success so far, there are also two murals in Trafalgar Square.

One of Chelsea star Fran Kirby and Arsenal players captain Leah Williamson and Beth Mead, and the other featuring famous London landmarks, which will be finished live on site.

The UEFA Fan Party also includes a pop-up football pitch, live music, interactive football-themed activities and food and drink stands.

The site will open to the public at 11am, before kick-off at 5pm.

Sadiq Khan said after Tuesday night’s win: “Getting to final is a remarkable achievement and I truly believe the Lionesses have what it takes to go all the way.

“The atmosphere at tonight’s Fan Party screening was electric and England is now within touching distance of the trophy.

“I’m so excited to once again bring Londoners and visitors together at Trafalgar Square this Sunday to help cheer the Lionesses to victory.”

England will play either Germany or France in Sunday’s final, the results of which will be decided in the semi-final tonight as the teams go head-to-head at Milton Keynes.

Last night’s game against Sweden, who are ranked second in the world by FIFA, saw Beth Mead, Lucy Bronze, Alessia Russo and Fran Kirby hit the back of the net in front of 28,624 fans - the highest-ever attendance at a UEFA women’s Euro semi-final.

After the match, manager Sarina Wiegman commented: “I’m very proud – I think again, the team found a way.”

“We said before the tournament – and we still say it every time – that we want to inspire the nation.

“I think that’s what we’re doing, and we want to make a difference. We hope that we get everyone so enthusiastic that at the end, the whole country is proud of us and that more girls and boys will start playing football.”
