2022年歐洲杯:歐洲歷史上最大的女子體育賽事準備升空

最後更新於.從女排歐錦賽部分

女子歐洲錦標賽於周三開始,東道主英格蘭對陣奧地利,組織者說。"讓我們去創造歷史"。

根據數據分析機構尼爾森的Gracenote,英格蘭是贏得2022年歐洲杯的熱門人選。

他們與奧地利的小組賽揭幕戰,將有7萬多人在老特拉福德球場觀看,這是25天內31場比賽的第一場,所有比賽都將由BBC直播。

16支球隊--包括首次亮相的北愛爾蘭和持有者荷蘭--將參加自2005年以來首次在英格蘭舉行的女子歐洲錦標賽。

十七年來,賽事組織者歐足聯--歐洲足球的管理機構--將第13屆賽事稱為 "歐洲歷史上最大的婦女體育賽事"。

"歐足聯女足主管納丁-凱斯勒說:"我們已經迫不及待地開始行動了。

已經售出的50萬張門票來自99個國家,凱斯勒補充說:"誰會想到這是一項女子賽事?

"這簡直是太棒了。這表明我們的期望值有多高,以及我們想要實現的目標"。

五年來首次舉辦的女子歐洲杯

女子歐洲杯通常每四年舉行一次,在荷蘭於2017年贏得歐洲杯後,它應該在2021年舉行。

在男子2020年歐洲錦標賽和2020年東京奧運會都因冠狀病毒大流行而推遲到2021年之後,它被推後了12個月。

英格蘭隊之前在2005年舉辦這項比賽時,使用了整個西北地區的場地--布萊克浦、曼徹斯特、布萊克本、沃靈頓和普雷斯頓。

這一次,比賽將在全國範圍內進行,儘管中部地區和東北部地區沒有場地舉辦比賽。

這也將是首次在女子歐洲錦標賽中使用視頻助理裁判技術。

歐足聯已經提供了70多萬張門票。上一屆在荷蘭舉行的比賽有240,045名球迷觀看。

票價一直保持在較低水平以吸引家庭。票價從5英鎊到50英鎊不等,這意味着一個四口之家只需花30英鎊就能觀看一場比賽。

使用曼城學院體育場的決定--該體育場在歐洲杯期間的容量將減少到5000人以下--受到了批評。

冰島中場薩拉-比約克-貢納斯多蒂爾說:"這很令人尷尬,"她的球隊在曼城女隊的主場進行三場小組賽中的兩場。"這是對女子足球的不尊重,因為它比人們想象的要大得多。"

預計將有近10萬名國際球迷參加比賽,而全球電視觀眾預計將有2.5億多人觀看。

組織者面臨着壓力,要提供一個吸引球迷的活動,使之超越歐洲杯。

"2022年歐洲杯發言人說:"我們有信心,許多比賽將售罄,並期待着將2017年荷蘭女足歐洲杯的總上座率提高一倍以上。

哪些國家會參加--誰是大熱門?

德國是迄今為止該賽事歷史上最成功的球隊,共取得了八次勝利,包括在1995年至2013年期間連續六次勝利。其他冠軍是挪威(1987年、1993年)、瑞典(1984年)和荷蘭(2017年)。

世界前10名中有6名參加了比賽。瑞典(FIFA排名第二)、法國(第三)、荷蘭(第四)、德國(第五)、西班牙(第七)和英格蘭(第八)。

16支球隊被分為四個小組,每組四人。前兩名進入四分之一決賽,在那裡直接淘汰賽。

英格蘭隊主帥薩里納-維格曼五年前帶領她的祖國荷蘭隊獲得了歐洲的榮譽。

雖然尼爾森的Gracenote預測女獅隊將獲勝,但他們預測這是一場 "廣泛的比賽",瑞典、德國、法國和荷蘭都是認真的競爭者。

"他們補充說:"今年的歐洲冠軍有近80%的機會來自這個五人組。

值得關注的五名球員

Ada Hegerberg(挪威)。2017年退出國家隊,以抗議人們認為的對女球員的不尊重,但這位首屆金球獎得主在4月重返國際舞台,並希望在2022年歐洲杯上大展身手。

維維安-米德瑪(荷蘭)。這位阿森納前鋒正處於巔峰狀態,在幫助荷蘭隊贏得2017年歐洲杯後,她希望在自己的履歷中再添一個歐洲冠軍。

Pernille Harder(丹麥)。這位切爾西中場是丹麥歷史上的頭號射手,並帶領他們進入了2017年歐洲杯決賽。

勞倫-漢普(英格蘭)。這位21歲的曼城邊鋒連續第四個賽季被評為女子超級聯賽的年度最佳年輕球員,她在俱樂部和國家隊的表現都很搶眼,因其搶眼的跑動和進球贏得了許多讚譽。

溫迪-雷納德(法國)。這位31歲的里昂後衛已經贏得了創紀錄的14個法國聯賽冠軍和8個歐洲杯冠軍,並且是俱樂部和國家隊的隊長。

獅子會有壓力,要在他們自己的球迷面前交出第一個歐洲冠軍。

她們曾經兩次接近,在1984年的首屆女子歐洲杯上獲得亞軍,在2009年再次進入決賽,但在芬蘭輸給了德國。

自維格曼2021年9月擔任主教練以來,英格蘭隊在13場比賽中保持不敗,並在2月贏得了首屆阿諾德-克拉克杯--該比賽有奧運會冠軍加拿大、西班牙和兩屆世界冠軍德國隊參加。

"這將是歐洲有史以來最大的女子賽事,"維格曼告訴BBC體育。

"這將是非常令人興奮的,但它也會造成一點壓力。人們會有期望,但我們必須接受它。

"這是一個讓大家感到驕傲的機會。"

  • 無 前英格蘭隊長被排除在2022年歐洲杯的陣容之外

2022年歐洲杯標誌着北愛爾蘭女子足球歷史上的一個巨大時刻。國家隊在世紀之交被解散後,於2004年才進行改革。

無論這個月發生什麼,北愛爾蘭已經不畏艱險,作為一支主要由兼職球員組成的球隊進入了這項運動的最大舞台之一。

肯尼-希爾斯的球隊是比賽中排名最低的球隊--世界排名第47位。

今年4月,希爾斯在討論他的球隊在世界盃預選賽中被英格蘭隊5-0擊敗時說,"女人比男人更有感情"。

他的言論招致了批評,希爾斯道歉說。"我很自豪能夠管理一群球員,他們是全國許多女孩和男孩的榜樣"。

如何在BBC上關注2022年歐洲杯

在比賽期間,BBC將通過電視、廣播和網絡向觀眾提供24/7的所有行動、分析和洞察力。

英格蘭和北愛爾蘭的每場比賽都將在BBC一台直播。大多數比賽將在BBC一台或二台播出,所有31場比賽將在BBC iPlayer播出。前阿森納和英格蘭球員亞歷克斯-斯科特和伊恩-賴特都在評論員之列。

BBC Radio 5 Live也將對部分比賽進行評論。

Last updated on .From the section Womens European Championship

The Women's European Championship starts on Wednesday when hosts England take on Austria, with organisers saying: "Let's go and make history."

England are favourites to win Euro 2022, according to data analysts Nielsen's Gracenote.

Their opening group game with Austria, which will be watched by 70,000-plus inside Old Trafford, is the first of 31 matches across 25 days which are all being shown live on the BBC.

Sixteen teams - including debutants Northern Ireland and holders the Netherlands - will compete in the first Women's European Championship to be staged in England since 2005.

Seventeen years on, tournament organisers Uefa - European football's governing body - has labelled the 13th edition as the "biggest women's sporting event in European history".

"We can't wait to get the ball rolling," said Nadine Kessler, Uefa chief of women's football.

The half a million tickets already sold have been purchased from 99 countries, and Kessler added: "Who would have thought that for a women's tournament?

"That is simply fantastic. It shows how high our expectation is and what we want to achieve." • None Women's Euros 2022: How to follow on BBC television, radio, online & social media • None All the best Euro 2022 content in one place

First Women's Euros for five years

The Women's Euros is usually held every four years and, after the Netherlands won it in 2017, it should have taken place in 2021.

It was pushed back 12 months after the men's 2020 European Championship and the 2020 Tokyo Olympics were both postponed until 2021 because of the coronavirus pandemic.

When England previously staged the tournament in 2005, venues across the North West - Blackpool, Manchester, Blackburn, Warrington and Preston - were used.

This time games are being staged across the country although no venues in the Midlands or North East will host games.

It will also be the first time that Video Assistant Referee technology has been used at a Women's European Championship.

Uefa have made 700,000-plus tickets available. The previous edition staged in the Netherlands was watched by 240,045 fans.

Ticket prices have been kept low to attract families. They range from £5 to £50 meaning a family of four can watch a match for as little as £30.

The decision to use the Manchester City Academy Stadium - which will have a reduced capacity of under 5,000 for the Euros - has been criticised.

"It's embarrassing," said Iceland midfielder Sara Bjork Gunnarsdottir, whose side play two of their three group games at the home of Manchester City's women's team. "It's disrespectful towards women's football because it's so much bigger than people think."

Almost 100,000 international fans are expected to attend matches while a global television audience of 250 million-plus is expected to watch.

There is pressure on the organisers to deliver an event that draws fans in beyond the Euros.

"We are confident that many matches will be sold out and are looking forward to more than doubling the total attendance of Uefa Women's Euro 2017 in the Netherlands," said a Euro 2022 spokesperson.

Which countries are taking part - and who are the big hitters?

Germany are by far the most successful side in the tournament's history with eight triumphs, including six in a row between 1995 and 2013. The other winners are Norway (1987, 1993), Sweden (1984) and the Netherlands (2017).

Six of the world's top 10 are taking part: Sweden (2nd in Fifa's rankings), France (3rd), Netherlands (4th), Germany (5th), Spain (7th) and England (8th).

The 16 teams are divided into four groups of four. The top two go through to the quarter-finals, where it becomes a straight knockout.

England boss Sarina Wiegman led her native country, the Netherlands, to European glory five years ago.

While the Lionesses are predicted to win by Nielsen's Gracenote, they forecast a "wide open tournament" with Sweden, Germany, France and the Netherlands serious contenders.

"There is nearly 80% chance that this year's European champions will come from this quintet," they add.

Five players to look out for

Ada Hegerberg (Norway): Quit the national team in 2017 in protest at a perceived lack of respect for female players, but the inaugural Ballon d'Or winner returned to the international scene in April and is looking to make her mark at Euro 2022.

Vivianne Miedema (Netherlands): The Arsenal striker is at the top of her game and is hoping to add another European title to her CV after helping the Netherlands win Euro 2017.

Pernille Harder (Denmark): The Chelsea midfielder is Denmark's all-time leading scorer and captained them to the Euro 2017 final.

Lauren Hemp (England): The Manchester City winger, 21, who was named the Women's Super League's young player of the year for a record-breaking fourth season in a row, has been on-fire for club and country, winning many plaudits for her eye-catching runs and goals.

Wendie Renard (France): The Lyon defender, 31, has won a record 14 French league titles and eight European Cups and is captain of club and country.

There is pressure on the Lionesses to deliver a first European crown in front of their own fans.

They have twice come close before, finishing runners-up to Sweden in the inaugural Women's Euros in 1984 before getting to the final again in 2009 only to lose to Germany in Finland.

Since Wiegman became manager in September 2021, England are unbeaten in 13 matches and in February won the inaugural Arnold Clark Cup - a competition that featured Olympic champions Canada, Spain and two-time world champions Germany.

"This is going to be the biggest women's event in Europe ever," Wiegman told BBC Sport.

"It's going to be really exciting but it can also cause a little stress. There are going to be expectations but we have to embrace it.

"This is a chance to make everyone proud." • None Former England captain left out of squad for Euro 2022

Euro 2022 marks a huge moment in the history of women's football in Northern Ireland. The national team only reformed in 2004 after being disbanded at the turn of the century.

Whatever happens this month, Northern Ireland have already defied the odds to reach one of the biggest stages in the sport as a team largely made up of part-time players.

Kenny Shiels' side are the lowest-ranked team in the competition - 47th in the world.

In April, Shiels said "women are more emotional than men" when discussing his side's 5-0 defeat by England in a World Cup qualifier.

His remarks drew criticism and Shiels apologised saying: "I am proud to manage a group of players who are role models for so many girls, and boys, across the country."

How to follow Euro 2022 on BBC

The BBC will give audiences 24/7 access to all of the action, analysis and insight across TV, radio and online during the tournament.

Every England and Northern Ireland game will be broadcast live on BBC One. Most games will be BBC One or Two, with all 31 matches on BBC iPlayer. Former Arsenal and England players Alex Scott and Ian Wright are among the pundits.

BBC Radio 5 Live will also have commentary on selected games. • None Full details of how to follow Euro 2022 on the BBC • None How long can he cover up his break-up?: • None What's it like to be a marine?: Go behind the scenes of this elite military organisation
