Dates for Northern Ireland’s UEFA Women's Euro play-off revealed

Dates, venues and kick-off times for Northern Ireland’s UEFA Women’s Euro 2022 play-off have been revealed.

Kenny Shiels’ squad were paired with Ukraine in last week’s draw and the sides will battle it out over two legs next month for a place at the 2022 finals in England. 

It’s an away test first with the girls in green and white travelling to Kiev and on to Kolos Kovalivka to play the first game on Friday 9 April (17:00 GMT kick-off). Then it’s back to Belfast to prepare for the home leg at Seaview on Tuesday 13 April (19:45 GMT kick-off).

Last year Northern Ireland finished as runners-up in Qualifying Group C behind Norway to reach a play-off for a major tournament for the first time in their history.

April opponents Ukraine were ranked 24th in the latest Coca-Cola FIFA World Ranking, while Northern Ireland were placed 49th. They last faced each other a year ago at the Pinatar Cup in Spain when a youthful Northern Ireland were on the wrong end of a 4-0 scoreline.
