ABOUT NWSL CHALLENGE CUP

An annual tournament in the United States, organized by the top-tier league National Women's Soccer League (NWSL)

Founded: 2020

2020- 2023 format:

In the initial four years of the competition, each NWSL team engaged in a group stage, typically featuring four to six games, often organized based on geographic divisions. Subsequently, knockout matches were held to ascertain the Cup winner. In the 2023 season, the NWSL shifted the tournament schedule to align with the season itself, responding to player apprehensions regarding injuries.

2024 format:

In 2024, the NWSL Challenge Cup will transition to a single pre-season match between the current NWSL Champions and the current NWSL Shield holder.
