Olympic Games

Women's football has been part of the Games since 1996. The key difference between it and the men's tournament is that there are no restrictions on which players can take part. So, therefore, it holds a similar status in the female game to the World Cup.

UEFA European Championship

The first three tournaments were held under the unwieldy title of "European Competition for Women's Representative Teams." UEFA then decided to add their official stamp to the event and the name was slimmed down. It is referred to unofficially as the "Women's Euros" and since 1997 has been held quadrennially with a qualifying competition in the years preceding.
