U.S. Soccer will host the seventh annual SheBelieves Cup, presented by Visa®, from Feb. 17-23 as the Czech Republic, Iceland and New Zealand join the USA for the four-team international tournament. The SheBelieves Cup is part of U.S. Soccer’s SheBelieves initiative to inspire and empower women and girls to achieve their goals in sport and beyond.
The USA will welcome two of Europe’s top up-and-coming sides to the 2022 SheBelieves Cup along with the Football Ferns, the co-host of FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023. Due to its automatic berth to the World Cup, New Zealand will be putting extra value on its international matches to prepare for the largest women’s sporting event in the world that will run from July 20-Aug. 6, 2023, in four cities in New Zealand and five in Australia. For the first time, the tournament will feature 32 countries.
While the entirety of last year’s SheBelieves Cup was held at one stadium in Orlando, Fla., this year’s tournament will be staged in two cities and two stadiums with the strict COVID protocols still in place during the organization of the event. The first two doubleheaders will take place at the Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, Calif., while the final doubleheader will move to Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas.
