She Believes Cup 2022 Participates USA, Iceland, New Zealand and Czech Republic
U.S. Soccer will host the seventh annual SheBelieves Cup, presented by Visa®, from Feb. 17-23 as the Czech Republic, Iceland and New Zealand join the USA for the four-team international tournament. The SheBelieves Cup is part of U.S. Soccer’s SheBelieves initiative to inspire and empower women and girls to achieve their goals in sport and beyond.
The competition format will be the same as for the previous six years with the teams each participating in three doubleheader events. The winner of the tournament will be determined by total points (three for a win, one for a tie), with the first tiebreaker being overall goal difference, followed by most total goals scored, then head-to-head result and lastly, Fair Play ranking if necessary.
