The SheBelieves Cup adds a showcase event to the campaign, which will continue to spread its positive message and brings together the world’s most elite female soccer players to compete in the U.S., providing a stage to shine the spotlight on positive female role models (athletes and non-athletes alike) and showcase their accomplishments both on the field and in culture at large.
Second-ranked Germany, third-ranked England and sixth-ranked France will once again join the top-ranked USA in a tournament that features international women’s soccer powers and dozens of the world’s best players in the six-game competition. The USA won the inaugural edition in 2016, while France won the 2017 tournament. As in the first two editions, the 2018 tournament will feature the four teams participating in three doubleheader events at three different venues over a seven-day period.
As usual for this tournament, all six games promise to be highly entertaining and competitive match-ups. The 2018 SheBelieves Cup kicks off with England opening against France on Thursday, March 1 at MAPFRE Stadium (4 p.m. ET), followed by the USA against Germany (7 p.m. ET on ESPN2) in a battle of the defending World Cup and Olympic champions. All the teams will then travel to New Jersey and Red Bull Arena where the USA will play the first match of the day on Sunday, March 4, taking on France (12 p.m. ET on ESPN2) followed by Germany vs. England (3 p.m. ET). The tournament will finish on Wednesday, March 7, at Orlando City Stadium as France takes on Germany (4 p.m. ET) followed by the tournament finale featuring the USA’s first visit to the home of the NWSL’s Orlando Pride to take on England (7 p.m. ET on ESPNews).
The winner of the tournament will be based on total points (three for a win, one for a tie), with the first tie-breaker being overall goal difference, followed by most total tournament goals scored, then head-to-head result and lastly, FIFA Ranking if necessary.
