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

FormatEdit

In the qualifying round, 29 teams divided into 8 groups (containing 3 or 4 teams), with the winner of each group advancing to the quarter-finals. In the quarter-finals and semi-finals, matches were played on a home-and-away two-legged basis. In the final, only one match was played, with the winner claiming the UEFA Women's Championship title. While one of the semi-final matches was played in 1994, and there was no singular host, UEFA considers the semi-finals and final as part of the final tournament.[2]
