UEFA Women's Euro 1991

The 1991 UEFA Women's Championship took place in Denmark. It was won by Germany in a final against Norway in a repeat of the previous edition's final. Eighteen teams entered qualifying, which was enough to make the competition the first fully official one, so the name was changed to the UEFA Women's Championship.[1]

The tournament served as the European qualifying round for the FIFA Women's World Cup 1991.
