The 1984 European Competition for Women's Football was won by Sweden on penalties against England.[1] It comprised four qualifying groups, and the winner of each went through to the semi-finals which were played over two legs, home and away. As only sixteen teams took part (less than half the membership of UEFA at the time), the competition could not be granted official status.[2] Matches comprised two halves of 35 minutes, played with a size four football.[3]
