#ToN2017: Together for the Game We Love

Earlier this week, U.S. Soccer announced that it will host a second four-team elite women’s tournament. This one will be held during the summer in years that do not feature a World Cup or an Olympics and will be called the Tournament of Nations.

Following in the footsteps of the SheBelieves Cup, the Tournament of Nations brings together some of the best women’s soccer players and teams in the world while celebrating the increasingly competitive nature of the women’s game worldwide.

While the SheBelieves Cup emphasized the U.S. WNT’s campaign to inspire young girls and women to believe in their dreams, themes that are at the forefront whenever the USA plays a match, the 2017 Tournament of Nations will focus on the ability of international soccer to create connections across geography and culture.


The Tournament of Nations is a competition that speaks to the diversity of our fans and their respect for the game world-wide, which facilitates global connections both on and off the field.

This tournament will celebrate some of the world’s premier women’s soccer players, many of whom compete in the National Women’s Soccer League, right here in the United States.

With soccer being the world’s most universal and popular sport, the Tournament of Nations hopes to inspire the next generation to be passionate, to immerse themselves in the global aspect of the game and above all, to build their own tribe.

The U.S. WNT will open the tournament on July 27 against Australia at CenturyLink Field in Seattle, then continues on to San Diego to face Brazil on July 30, and finishes with an epic clash with Japan on August 3 at the familiar confines of StubHub Center in Carson, California.
