The 1995 UEFA Women's Championship, also referred to as Women's Euro 1995 was a football tournament that happened between 1993 and 1995 (with the qualifying round). The final game was held in Germany. The UEFA Women's Championship is a regular tournament involving European national teams from countries affiliated to UEFA, the European governing body, who have qualified for the competition. The competition aims to determine which national women's team is the best in Europe. [1]

Contents

Germany won the competition for the third time (counting with West Germany's victory in the former European Competition for Representative Women's Teams).

Format

In the qualifying round, 29 teams divided into 8 groups (some of 3, some of 4 teams) and the winner of each group would be qualified into the quarter-finals of the Competition. Then, and until the final, teams played 2-leg knockout rounds. In the final, only one game would be played and the winner would be proclaimed the Champion.
