How to watch the UEFA Women’s Euro 2022 anywhere



When he isn't helping you watch TV abroad, David enjoys watching comedy and documentaries. He's a big fan of The Detectorists and Blue Planet. He also loves watching English football, for his sins he supports Arsenal.

Women’s football has taken off in a big way in the UK over the past few years and one of the triggers for this surge in popularity has been (shock, horror) its ready availability on free-to-air TV.

This summer, England will host the UEFA Women’s Euro 2022 tournament and once again, in the UK, it will play out on the BBC, meaning that anyone can watch it.

However, if you are off overseas on holiday or based abroad, you might not be so lucky. Not every country has the foresight to make women’s football free-to-air, and some aren’t even showing it at all.

Fortunately, there is a way you can watch every game of the UEFA Women’s Euro 2022 tournament live and for free no matter where you are. And in this guide, we are going to tell you exactly how to do it.

Where is the Women’s Euro 2022 championship being shown?

In the UK, the UEFA Women’s Euro 2022 tournament will be broadcast live on the BBC. It will also have every game streamed live on the BBC iPlayer service.

This is great if you are in the UK as there is no excuse to miss a minute of the action. But if you are in another country overseas and keen to tune in you will, unfortunately, find the BBC iPlayer blocked overseas.

The good news is that there is a way to unblock it and let you enjoy every game no matter where in the world you are.

How can I watch the Women’s Euro 2022 tournament where I am?

If you want to watch the UEFA Women’s Euro 2022 tournament overseas, you will need a VPN app to do it.

Sounds complicated, I know, but a VPN is actually a very simple tool to use. It’s known primarily as an online security and privacy tool but a quirk of how it works means it is perfect for unblocking streaming services too.

A VPN will let you send your internet data through a UK server which stamps it with a UK ‘virtual’ location. This is how the BBC iPlayer knows where you are. So, if you have a UK-based ‘virtual’ location, they will think you are in the UK and let you watch whatever you want.

It’s really that simple.

Where to get a VPN?

If there is a tricky part to this, it is choosing the right VPN to use. Some aren’t great for streaming, while others don’t work with the BBC iPlayer.

The best VPN to use to unblock the BBC iPlayer and let you watch the UEFA Women’s Euro 2022 tournament is ExpressVPN.

ExpressVPN is a high-speed VPN, as the name suggests, which makes it perfect for unblocking and streaming on iPlayer. There is an excellent range of apps for almost any device you might want to use, and it’s super-easy to use, as you will see.

If you don’t fancy ExpressVPN for some reason, others to consider are NordVPN and CyberGhost VPN.

All three will give you a great money-back guarantee, allowing you a chance to try before you commit too.

There will be 16 different national teams competing, with England one of the favourites alongside Spain, France, Germany, and the Netherlands.

Who to look out for?

The BBC coverage of the UEFA Women’s Euro 2022 tournament will be anchored by Gabby Logan and Alex Scott, both mainstays of their sports broadcasting team.

A whole host of names will join them throughout the tournament, including Kelly Somers, Ian Wright, Jonathan Pearce, Vikki Sparks, and many more.

But the big stars will be on the pitch.

The England squad will include the likes of Lucy Bronze, Millie Bright, Beth Mead, Nikita Parris, and captain Leah Williamson.

Other star names to be on the lookout for include Ada Hegerberg (Norway), Alexia Putellas (Spain), Jill Roord (Netherlands), Lea Schüller (Germany) and Vivianne Miedema (Netherlands).
