England women’s coach Sarina Wiegman extends contract until 2027

Lionesses head coach Sarina Wiegman has extended her contract until the end of the 2027 World Cup finals.

The FA announced on Tuesday that Sarina Wigeman has signed a new contract that will keep her in charge through to the 2027 World Cup finals.

The Dutch manager won the Euro 2022 with England and then guided them to the 2023 World Cup final, but they lost to Spain. The 54-year-old Wiegman received her fourth Best FIFA Women’s Coach award on Monday night.

In a statement Wiegman said: “I am so happy to have the chance to lead England through to 2027 after an incredible two-and-a-half years.

“Looking forward, we have unfinished business and I know we are capable of even more, although nothing will come easy. Our game is becoming so competitive at the top level. I relish that opportunity and can’t wait to start the EURO qualifiers, followed by the World Cup. I would like to thank Mark Bullingham, Debbie Hewitt and the FA Board for their support, I also must mention Arjan Veurink, I am delighted he has also extended his stay. It is a fantastic job working with these amazing players and alongside great colleagues. And, of course, it is very special to be able to play a part in giving our fans such wonderful moments.”

Wiegman has won 34 of her 45 games since taking charge of the Lionesses in September 2021. England will play two friendly games in February. Euro 2025 qualifying also will start in April.
