Fans and Five Member Committee Set to Select 2024 Visa SheBelieves Cup MVP

2024 Visa SheBelieves Cup Selection Committee to Select Finalists for Fifth Annual Award

As the 2024 SheBelieves Cup, presented by Visa heads into its final matchday on Tuesday, April 9 with Japan taking on Brazil in the Third-Place Match (4 p.m. ET on TBS, Universo, Max and Peacock) and the USA facing off against Canada in the Championship Game (7 p.m. ET  on TBS, Universo, Max and  Peacock), the competition for the Visa SheBelieves Cup MVP is intensifying.

For the fifth year in a row, Visa, the presenting sponsor of the SheBelieves Cup, will award the MVP trophy to the most outstanding player of the tournament. The award will be announced following the conclusion of the final match and with the input of a selection committee comprised of representatives from all four competing nations.

This year’s selection committee is comprised of:

·       Committee Chair – Jene Baclawski

·       USA – Heather O’Reilly

·       Brazil – Rodrigo Iglesias

·       Canada – Andy Spence

·       Japan – Norio Sasaki

For the fourth year in a row, fans will also get the opportunity to vote for the Visa SheBelieves Cup MVP award using an online ballot to select among a list of finalists chosen by the committee. Fan voting will go live during the second half of the Championship Match between the USA and Canada and will be incorporated into the overall determination of the 2024 Visa SheBelieves Cup MVP.

In an exciting new enhancement for 2024, U.S. Soccer will award $25,000 to a women-owned small businesses from the same country as the National Team represented by the Visa SheBelieves Cup MVP, thanks to Visa’s continuing commitment to supporting women on and off the field.

Spain attacker Alexia Putellas won the inaugural award in 2020 while the USA’s Rose Lavelle collected the honors in 2021. USWNT forward Catarina Macario took home top honors in 2022 followed by Mallory Swanson in 2023.
