The Women's European Championship will be played in July 2022, UEFA has announced.

The tournament in England, originally due to take place in the summer of 2021, will be played at the same venues as originally planned between July 6 and 31.

European football's governing body has been forced into a major reorganisation of its scheduling due to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic across the continent.

Ireland, under head coach Vera Pauw, are currently in a very good position to qualify for their first-ever major tournament.
