Northern Ireland's Rachel Furness is part of a star-studded group of players supporting UEFA’s Show Your Heart campaign ahead of next year’s UEFA Women’s Euro 2022 tournament.
The campaign aims to drive record reach and engagement with the competition taking place in England from 6 July next year.
Furness was part of the Northern Ireland senior women's team who secured their spot in the tournament after a thrilling qualification campaign and a memorable two-legged play-off win over Ukraine.
Show Your Heart will showcase to the world the ‘quality, grit, determination and heart’ that the game's top women exhibit in their play. The campaign will also invite fans, new and old, to show their heart in return when the tournament kicks off next year.
“I’m delighted to be involved,” said Liverpool’s Furness. “The tournament as a whole is great exposure for the women’s game in Northern Ireland and this campaign is a key part of generating that buzz. We’ll be looking to unearth and profile fans young and old who can come on this exciting journey with us.”
In addition to exciting content and competitions to take part in throughout the year, fans will also be granted exclusive and unprecedented access to the game through leading players from each of Women's EURO 2022's 16 qualified nations.
Furness joins Alex Popp (Germany), Alexia Putellas (Spain), Barbara Bonansea (Italy), Ingrid Engen (Norway), Lucy Bronze (England), Magdalena Eriksson (Sweden), Marie-Antoinette Katoto (France), Nadezhda Smirnova (Russia), Nora Heroum (Finland), Pernille Harder (Denmark), Ramona Bachmann (Switzerland), Sara Björk Gunnarsdóttir (Iceland), Sarah Zadrazil (Austria), Tessa Wullaert (Belgium) and Vivianne Miedema (Netherlands) to promote the campaign.
