The first-ever women’s version of the Soccer Tournament (TST) gets underway this week in Cary, North Carolina, where eight teams will play for a $1 million winner-take-all prize over four days of competition.

More Details

Professional semi-professional, amateur, and retired athletes will represent teams from four different countries and five professional clubs: United States (US) Women Wrexham Red Dragons, Burnley FC, Soccerhead FC, North Carolina Courage, Streetball FC Canada, Tampa Bay Sun FC, and Angel City 7S.

The clubs are not necessarily made up of each team’s current players, but rather individuals selected to bear the team crest.

TST 2024 headliners include NWSL and USWNT vets Mia Hamm, Michele Akers, Heather O’Reily, Lori Lindsey, Ali Krieger, Allie Long, and Carli Lloyd (US Women); Jessica McDonald (North Carolina Courage); Chenya Matthews and Kealia Watt (Burnley FC); Carley Telford (Wrexham Red Dragons); and Brazil’s Formiga (Tampa Bay Sun FC).

First launched in June 2023, TST 2024 is now the world’s highest-stakes women’s soccer tournament, offering equal $1 million prizes to both the men’s and women’s champions.

TST 2023 was modeled after the World Cup, with 32 teams battling it out in eight groups of four before 16 teams advanced to single-elimination knockout rounds.

The women's group stage kicks off on June 7th at and runs through June 10th’s championship doubleheader.
