A CHESHIRE luxury spa and hotel will be the base for this year's favourites in the UEFA Women's Euro 2022 football championship.

Carden Park Estate, located on Broxton Road, on the outskirts of Chester, has announced it will be accommodating the Swedish national women’s team during the tournament, which is taking place in England this summer.

Situated within the picturesque Cheshire Countryside, the football team will have their own exclusive wing in the hotel (a quarter of the building) for almost three weeks during summer.

With its very own UEFA-approved football pitch of the highest quality (where many international and UK teams have played), the team will train right on the Carden Park grounds.

On their decision to stay at Carden Park Estate, head of delegation and national manager Marika Domanski Lyfors said: “We have a really good feeling about our base camp of Carden Park Estate.

"We’re thrilled to have our own part of the hotel where the team can relax privately between games and it’s great that we can have some of our training sessions right on the grounds - these have both been important factors of our selection phase.

"We can’t wait to work together with Carden Park to create the best conditions for our team towards a hopeful victory this summer!”

Sweden are second highest in the FIFA Women's world rankings, only behind the USA, and are considered favourites for this year's competition, although have not won it since 1984.

In between games and training sessions, players will be able to recharge in the spa with exclusive spa treatments, a friendly team-mate round of golf on the PGA-certified course or dine at one of the estate’s restaurants.

Carden Park looks forward to supporting the team in playing their best by making them feel at home, helping them to live well during their time in the UK and ensuring they have everything they need to rest up between games.

Speaking on the team’s stay, director and general manager of Carden Park Hotel, Hamish Ferguson said: “We are absolutely delighted to be welcoming one of the best teams in European Ladies Football to Carden Park I am sure they will enjoy our world-class facilities and we wish them well in the tournament.”
