The English Football Association has submitted their bid to host the UEFA Women's Championship in 2021, with Wembley earmarked for the final.

The deadline for bids is Friday and England is expected to face competition from Austria and Hungary when the decision is made by UEFA's executive committee on December 3.

The other proposed venues for the 16-team tournament in England's bid are Brighton's AMEX Stadium, Milton Keynes' Stadium MK, the Manchester City Academy Stadium, Meadow Lane in Nottingham, Peterborough's ABAX Stadium, Rotherham's New York Stadium and Sheffield's Bramall Lane.

In a statement, FA chief executive Martin Glenn said: "We have invested heavily in the women's game in recent years and the opportunity to bring the tournament to England would represent a landmark moment for women's football in this country.

"Our aim is to make UEFA Women's Euro 2021 the biggest and best showcase for women's football ever seen in Europe. We have not only the ambition, but the tournament-hosting experience, infrastructure and incredible spectator demand to ensure we would deliver a truly memorable tournament."

Having failed to land two recent World Cups, the FA has been much more successful in courting UEFA. Last year, the FA hosted the U17 Men's Euro and Wembley is the key venue for the Euro 2020 tournament, which will be played across 12 European cities.
