UEFA Women’s Euro 2022 kicks off on July 6th, and RTÉ Sport have today released a new promo and full fixtures list ahead of the tournament. Sixteen teams have qualified, and RTÉ will broadcast all 31 games – 27 matches live and exclusive on RTÉ2, with 4 simultaneous group games on the RTÉ News Channel and the RTÉ Player.
Hosted by England, The Netherlands are the defending champions, and Northern Ireland will participate in the competition for the first time.
The promo entitled We’ve Got Skin in the Game focusses on members of the up-and-coming U17 and U19 Republic of Ireland squads, and centres on their aspirations to make it to the Euros of the future.The campaign was created in collaboration with RTÉ, the FAI and Ponder films. Directed by Darragh Carey, it was filmed in FAI headquarters, and at the Sports Ireland Campus.
Featuring voiceovers from players Eve Dossen, Maria Reynolds, Jessie Stapleton, and Abbie Larkin, the players explain the importance of the tournament, and the possibilities that it may lead to – that while Ireland may not be there, our women’s squads still have skin in the game during this year’s event.
