To mark the occasion of 100 days to go until the tournament starts, organisers launched an eye-catching giant table-football installation featuring 9ft tall female footballers in Carnaby Street today.
The installation features players representing the top-seeded team in each group (England, Germany, Netherlands and France) and will be in situ until 10 April.
Chris Bryant, Tournament Director for UEFA Women’s EURO 2022, added: “This is it now. We are just 100 days out from what promises to be a huge, history making spectacle for women’s football.
“We have made a great start already regarding ticket sales. It’s a case now of putting all the final plans in place and generating the excitement around a major sporting event that England has done so well previously.
“This is an opportunity to open up women’s football to new audiences. We wanted to make a bold statement and the installation in Carnaby Street is evident of that. I would encourage anyone who has not already got a ticket to snap them up soon, especially as we are expecting all the available tickets for several matches including all England games and the Final to be purchased soon after going on sale.”
