Nadine Kessler, Chief of Women’s Football at UEFA, said: “We are delighted to expand our fantastic 25-year relationship with Heineken through to the UEFA Women’s Champions League and UEFA Women’s EURO 2022 and 2025. This expansion demonstrates Heineken’s continued commitment to being an advocate and supporter of the whole of European football, women’s and men’s, and its amazing fans, players and coaches, who make these tournaments so special.”

By extending our partnerships in football to include UEFA Women’s Champions League and UEFA Women’s EURO 2022 and 2025, we are enabling more thrilling experiences for all. With this in mind we are proud to announce extensions to our UEFA partnership that dates back over 25 years.”
