Algarve Cup 2019 competing teams
The 2019 Algarve Cup competing teams and groups are confirmed.
The Algarve Cup is one of the most popular international tournaments in the women’s football calendar and we now have official confirmation as to who will be competing in the 2019 edition.
For the first time, there will be a tournament format of four groups, each with three teams.
Both Denmark and Switzerland were the first teams to have indicated that they will compete at the 2019 Algarve Cup alongside the hosts, Portugal. Denmark are in Group C, whilst Switzerland are in Group D.
Ruled out of the competition are USA, England, Japan and Brazil who revealed that they would be participating at the 2019 SheBelieves Cup which runs along the same dates.
With Germany and France, who have competed at the SheBelieves Cup since its launch, not featuring in the 2019 edition, there were rumours they both could be making a return to the prestigious Portuguese competition, however they are not participating in the Algarve Cup either.
