UEFA has organized the Women’s EURO since 1984. In the beginning, the tournament took place every two to three years. After 1997, it became a quadrennial event. It started as a four-team tournament and gradually expanded.

The 2017 edition which will take place in the Netherlands, will for the first time feature 16 teams.
There are two schools of thought on this.

According to one, expansion of tournaments dilutes them and does a disservice to the women’s game, by making matches less competitive than they already are. (Germany has won the Women’s EURO eight times, including the last six editions.)

According to the other philosophy, expansion helps more countries develop their women’s programs and will pay off later.

In any case, the draw for the Women’s EURO 2017 took place on Tuesday and its results were dominated by group matches between many neighboring countries. The groups are as follows:

Group A: Netherlands, Norway, Denmark, Belgium

Group B: Germany Sweden, Italy, Russia

Group C: France, Iceland, Austria, Switzerland

Group D: England, Scotland, Spain, Portugal
