The United States Post Office will issue a commemorative stamp for the upcoming SheBelieves Cup and the USWNT. Along with the stamp, USPS is also currently selling a Field Notes notebook, envelopes, and pins featuring the special stamp design as well.

“This new Forever stamp celebrates women’s soccer in the United States,” a statement by the USPS read. “From youth leagues to the elite world champion U.S. National Team, millions of girls and women throughout the country participate in the fast-paced, competitive sport.”

Late artist designed the impressive USWNT stamp

The stamp itself shows a female player striking a soccer ball on a volley. Illustrator Noah MacMillan used a mid-century motif and font to display a timeless design. MacMillan sadly passed away from colon cancer in 2022. The USPS wanted to celebrate the 33-year-old artist, as well as commemorate women’s soccer as well.

MacMillan was previously approached by art director Antonio Alcala to create the artwork for the stamp. The artist used photos that Alcala took of his daughter Maya as inspiration for the design.

There will also be a ceremony dedicating the stamp at the opening stages of the SheBelieves Cup. The ceremony will take place at Exploria Stadium in Orlando on Thursday, February 16th. It will kick off at 11:00AM (ET) and is free to the public. However, attendees of the ceremony should RSVP at the USPS/Women’s Soccer website.

USWNT looking for record sixth SheBelieves Cup title

The 2023 SheBelieves Cup starts Feb. 16. It runs until the final on six days later. Orlando is one of three venues for the upcoming tournament. Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas and Geodis Park in Nashville, Tennessee are also hosting matches. The USWNT will compete against Brazil, Canada and Japan for the trophy.

All four nations involved in the upcoming competition rank inside the top 11 by FIFA. The Americans hold the top spot, while Canada is sixth, followed by Brazil at nine and Japan in the 11th position.

The USWNT are the reigning champions of the SheBelieves Cup after beating Iceland 5-0 in the 2022 version of the tournament.
