The SheBelieves Cup is a women’s soccer tournament, which has been held annually in the United States since 2016. Four teams participate, with one of them being the host team. The other three teams are invited.

In 2024, the competition begins directly in the semifinals (Brazil vs. Canada, United States vs. Japan). The two winning teams from each match advance to the final, while the defeated teams compete for third and fourth place. The final matches will be held on the 9th.
