USWNT announces SheBelieves Cup dates and locations

The United States women’s national soccer team announced the dates and locations for the 2017 SheBelieves Cup on Wednesday.

The tournament will take place for the second year in a row and feature Germany, France and England, along with the U.S. The participating teams will meet for three doubleheaders from March 1–7 at three different locations in the northeast.

“It’s fantastic to play these three teams in the first three games of the year,” U.S. head coach Jill Ellis said. “As I’ve said many times, one of our main goals is to play the best teams in the world as often as possible and we have tremendous respect for France, Germany and England, which all feature world class players at multiple positions. To hold this tournament at home is great for our fans and TV partners, but especially for our players and our coaching staff as these are the kinds of games where we get tested and can really learn a lot about ourselves.”
