After three rounds of voting, Switzerland won the bid over Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden, securing the hosting of the 2025 UEFA Women’s European Championship. Poland and France’s joint proposal was eliminated earlier in the proceedings.
As the host country, The Swiss will have automatic qualification and compete in their third consecutive tournament after making their debut in 2017.
This marks the first time Switzerland will hold an international competition since they co-hosted Euro 2008 with Austria. This is despite the fact that the country is the home nation of both FIFA and UEFA.
