With excitement starting to build as London prepares to host matches in next year’s UEFA Women’s EURO 2021, fans are now able to pre-register for the chance to become one of hundreds of volunteers bringing the matchday experience to life for visiting supporters.
With this coming Sunday 8 March seeing the world celebrate International Women’s Day, it comes at a time of huge excitement and momentum for women’s football. With the UEFA Women’s EURO 2021 set to be the biggest celebration of the women’s game ever seen in this country, The FA is inviting fans to mark the global day by pre-registering their interest to volunteer and play their part in history.
Wembley Stadium and the Brentford Community Stadium are two of ten grounds which will stage UEFA Women’s EURO 2021 matches. Wembley Stadium – with a capacity of 90,000 – will host the showpiece final on 1 August, whilst Brentford Community Stadium will host four matches including a quarter-final on 22 July – in what promises to be a record-breaking edition of the European tournament next summer.
Central to the amazing fan experience as England hosts the competition will be the inspirational volunteers at each host venue. From building the atmosphere inside and outside stadiums, to greeting and assisting supporters, the matchday volunteers will play a huge role in this special moment for women’s football.
Now in its 13th edition, the UEFA Women’s EURO 2021 is making over 700,000 tickets available to fans, with extensive coverage of every game of the tournament available on free-to-air television, radio and online. Fans will be able to see some of the world’s best players in action on home soil as 31 matches are played across 26 days of competition.

Cllr Steve Curran, Lead of Hounslow Council said: “This is a hugely exciting time for women’s football and it’s the perfect opportunity to foster a greater interest in women’s sport within our own borough. What better way to do that than by encouraging your family and friends, on International Women’s Day, to volunteer at what’s set to be the biggest celebration of women’s football ever seen in this country. I know that together we will give players and supporters alike a very warm welcome to Brentford next summer.”
Chris Bryant, The FA’s Head of Tournament Delivery said: “We know that when our country hosts major sporting events, the inspirational and committed volunteers play a huge role in adding the magic to what is already a special occasion. It is fitting that as we look ahead to International Women’s Day, fans can now pre-register their interest in volunteering at one of our 10 host venues for UEFA Women’s EURO 2021. We look forward to announcing more information in due course about the volunteering opportunities available.”
