UEFA Woman Championship


The massive development of women's football has gone hand in hand with the growth of UEFA's competition for senior national women's teams - the UEFA European Women's Championship.

Standard improving
The inaugural European Competition for Women's Football was played in the period between 1982 and 1984, and the competition was upgraded to the UEFA European Women's Championship for the 1989/91 event. The quality of the women's game has progressed in leaps and bounds since then, with each successive championship improving in standard.

German domination
Sweden (1984), Norway (1987), Germany (1989 and 1991), and Norway (1993) were crowned European champions in the early years. Since then, the German national team has dominated the competition, winning the trophy in 1995, 1997 and 2001 - the latter success coming with a 1-0 "golden goal" win against Sweden in the final on home soil in Ulm in June 2001.
