England wants european CHAMPIONSHIP women’s football after ‘fantastic’ tournament in the Netherlands

England are going to stand as a candidate for the organisation of the european CHAMPIONSHIP women’s football in 2021. Martin Glenn, ceo of the football association, the past weeks have been impressed by the European finals in the Netherlands.

“UEFA and the KNVB have an amazing tournament, they have set the bar high. But we hope and think that we can,” said Glenn on Wednesday.

England lost last week in the semi-finals of the Netherlands (0-3). That duel was by more than 4 million people in England on television.

“In the past EK has shown what impact the organisation of a European final tournament can have on the growth and development of women’s football,” says Glenn.
