Uefa has confirmed that the draw for the final groups of the Women's Euro 2022 tournaments will be live broadcast on BBC One in the latter part of this month.

The competition will take place in England, starting 6 July. The top seed in Group A will be awarded to the England team.

To complete the group line up, players from the Premier League will join women's stars in the Premier League.

The draw will be presented by Alex Scott, Gabby Logan, and takes place at 16:30 BST on 28 October.

The Lionesses have already identified their groups so the 15 remaining teams (including Northern Ireland) will be divided into four pots based on their ranking.

They will be divided into four groups of 4, with the top two from each section moving on to the knockout phase.

Soon after the draw, the match schedule will be confirmed.

The tournament will run until 31 July and is expected to be the largest women's European sporting event in history.

There will be 10 venues hosting games in nine English cities, including Old Trafford and Wembley.

Uefa increased the amount of prize money that teams could receive for next year's women's European Championship in September.

The 16 teams qualified will now share 16m euro (13.73m), twice the 8m euro (6.86m), that was distributed at Euro 2017 Netherlands.
