Scheduling details of the upcoming 2024 SheBelieves Cup. The annual invitational tournament historically pits some of the top women’s national teams against each other. Typically held in the spring, the competition consists of four teams fighting for the title. As hosts, the United States women’s national team has featured in all eight of the previous tournaments.

The USWNT has dominated the SheBelieves Cup in previous iterations of the competition. The Stars and Stripes has won six total tournaments. No other national team has won more than one SheBelieves Cup. France previously topped Germany in 2017, while England edged the Americans two years later.

USWNT to face top competition at upcoming tournament

Due to increased soccer scheduling, the formatting of the 2024 SheBelieves Cup will change. Although there will still be four participating teams, the upcoming tournament will consist of just four total matches.

This is set to be two semifinal fixtures, a third-place match, and then ultimately the championship game. Previous iterations of the competition saw teams play in a round-robin tournament of six total matches.

Along with the United States, Japan, Canada, and Brazil will feature at the 2024 SheBelieves Cup. All four teams were placed in the top 11 of FIFA’s latest women’s rankings. The USWNT is currently the highest-ranked team in the competition, as they are now second in the world. Japan is currently ranked eighth, while Canada and Brazil are 10th and 11th respectively.

“This is a tournament that features three teams already in the Olympics and Japan has a great chance to qualify, so coming off the Gold Cup, these are the exact kinds of games we need to evaluate players and continue to push our team as we prepare for France,” proclaimed USWNT interim head coach Twila Kilgore in a press release obtained by World Soccer Talk.

“One great thing about the SheBelieves Cup is that it goes a long way in replicating the group stage at the Olympics, both in the short amount of rest you get between games while also facing teams with different styles of play during a group stage,” continued the coach. “The games will be great tests for all the teams and fun for the fans ahead of the Olympics.”
