This July, all eyes will be on Rotherham as it becomes one of nine host cities delivering a record-breaking UEFA Women’s European Championship.
The best female players in Europe will join football fans from across the globe at Rotherham’s New York Stadium for three group games and a quarter final. Alongside the games, there will be a host of community events taking place throughout the month for you to get involved in.

Enjoy performances and music in All Saints’ Square, football-themed workshops and masterclasses along College Street, food and drink at the Minster Gardens, and a beautiful new public artwork at Effingham Square.
