After a soaring 4-0 win against Sweden last night (July 26), the Lionesses are looking to take it home this coming Sunday at the Women’s Euros Final — the first ever to be hosted in the UK.
US-born house, disco, and R&B singer Ultra Naté is slated to perform ahead of the final match at 5:PM, where England will go up against either Germany or France depending on today’s match result.
The performance will take place at Wembley Stadium on Sunday, July 31, in London. According to a press release, the singer will play a tailored version of her 1998-released hit track ‘Free’ alongside both Stefflon Don and Becky Hill.
The trio are set to perform the track just ahead of the release of Ultra Naté’s forthcoming studio album ‘ULTRA’. The record is due out in mid-August with contributions from the likes of Russell Small, Lem Springsteen, and more.
Sunday’s show marks a first for the Women’s Euros, which has never before hosted a major entertainment showcase until this year.

“It’s an honour to be performing my hit track 'Free' alongside two inspiring female artists on the Pepsi MAX stage. It is an iconic single that speaks about empowerment and therefore the perfect fit for this history-making event. I can’t wait for the fans to hear it,” Ultra Naté said on the show.
The 13th edition of the UEFA Women’s championship first kicked off on July 6 after being postponed in 2021.
This year, England hosted the quadrennial championships across multiple venues in and around the country. The cup final is expected to garner 250 million watches from 195 territories around the world.
