Centralised platform for women’s football launched on UEFA.com09 December 2011

UEFA has launched a women’s football online section on UEFA.com, dedicated to women’s football competitions and the development of the game amongst women. The European football governing body says that with over 80 million visitors this year to date, UEFA.com will house exhaustive coverage of all of UEFA’s women’s competitions, and European women’s national leagues, in a prominent location.

UEFA Director of National Associations Theodore Theodoridis said: “This important development on our key communication platform further underlines UEFA’s commitment to women’s football. UEFA is proud to showcase its football development projects across Europe, highlighting projects from its member associations.”

The women’s football site offers live coverage of every match in UEFA women’s club, national team and youth competitions. The coverage of all UEFA competitions is available in enhanced formats. Live UEFA competition match scores will be available through a specific women’s football widget. Fixtures and results from all European domestic women’s football leagues will be gathered under the same roof.

Comprehensive editorial coverage will includes news about UEFA’s Women’s Football Development Programme, grassroots initiatives, investments under UEFA’s football development programme HatTrick, as well as news on women’s refereeing. Key women’s football personalities are also featured prominently on the site, helping to increase public awareness of them.

The section is available in nine languages: English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Polish and Ukrainian.
