Switzerland on Wednesday submitted a bid to host the next European Women’s Championship in 2025, saying it had the necessary credentials to host the 16-team competition.
We have good infrastructure already in place, such as stadiums, hotels, training grounds, airports and transport systems,” said Marion Daube, who heads the tender project for the Swiss Football Association.
“There are short distances and good connections between national borders and cities. And our country offers political and financial stability and security,” Daube added.
The planned locations were Basel, Bern, Geneva, Lausanne, Lucerne, Sion, St. Gallen, Thun and Zurich.
This year’s tournament in England was very successful in terms of attendance and television viewing.
Bidding ends on October 12. Poland and France are also bidding to host the event, along with a joint bid from Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland. Ukraine was also interested in holding the event before the Russian invasion.
The UEFA Executive Committee will decide on the winning bid on January 25.
