UEFA Women’s EURO 2017 – A Healthy Heart Your Goal

The Women’s EURO 2017 will feature ‘A healthy heart your goal’ campaign encouraging children, women and all fans to lead an active healthy lifestyle and by walking and cycling for travel and taking up sports such as football to help keep their heart healthy.

Healthy Stadia has been commissioned to develop an active travel app designed to incentivise fans, staff and volunteers to travel to and from the seven host stadia on foot or by bicycle, helping to keep them active and energised for each match but also to help the environment by reducing pollution in and around the stadia.

The 2017 UEFA Women’s Championship, commonly referred to as UEFA Women’s EURO 2017, will be the 12th edition of the UEFA Women’s Championship, the international football championship organised by UEFA for the women’s national teams in Europe. The Netherlands were declared as hosts by the UEFA Executive Committee in December 2014 and will be the first nation to host the expanded competition from 12 teams in the previous edition to 16 teams.

In total, seven stadia will host matches during the tournament including Stadion Galgenwaard (Utrecht), Stadion De Vijverberg (Doetinchem), Sparta Stadion (Rotterdam), Rat Verlegh Stadion (Breda), Willem II Stadion (Tilburg), Stadion De Adelaarshorst (Deventer) with the final to be hosted at FC Twente Stadion (Enschede).
