Leigh Sports Village joins list of Women's Euro 2021 Stadiums

Leigh Sports Village added as Women's Euro 2021 Venue

Tuesday 20th August 2019

Leigh Sports Village has replaced the City Ground as one of the eight host stadiums for the next Women's European Championships which is to be held in England in 2 years' time.

The City Ground will be undergoing refurbishment work at the time and has stepped down as a host venue.

The Leigh Sports Village was originally home to Leigh Genesis but now hosts Man United's women's and reserve teams as well as Leigh Centurions rugby league team.

The complete Women's Euro 2021 stadium line up:

  • Leigh Sports Village (Leigh)
  • The Amex (Brighton)
  • New Brentford stadium (London)
  • Manchester City's Academy Stadium (Manchester)
  • Stadium MK (Milton Keynes)
  • New York Stadium (Rotherham)
  • Bramall Lane (Sheffield)
  • St Mary's (Southampton)

Fans in the North East will be disappointed with the decision as the region is again overlooked by the FA, despite having a number of suitable venues.
