The Women's Cuprecurring event
The Women’s Cup — the world’s largest club women’s professional soccer tournament — will return to Louisville, Ky., this August with an expanded format featuring six world-class teams playing seven games across a week at host club Racing Louisville FC’s Lynn Family Stadium.
On the heels of visits last year from FC Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain, four different international clubs are set to join the National Women’s Soccer League’s Racing Louisville and OL Reign in the 2022 event. International participants include the FA Women’s Super League’s Tottenham Hotspur (England), Serie A’s AC Milan (Italy), Liga MX Femenil’s Club América (Mexico) and the WE League’s Nippon TV Tokyo Verdy Beleza (Japan).
The international clubs open The Women’s Cup with quarterfinals on Sunday, Aug. 14. On Wednesday, Aug. 17, the winners will meet Racing and OL Reign in the semifinals, while the two losing teams from Sunday will play against each other for fifth place. The final and third-place matches are set for Saturday, Aug. 20.
“We are very excited, and it’s a huge honor to present the 2022 edition of The Women’s Cup to be played in Louisville this summer,” said tournament co-founder and executive director Jaime Phillips. “We continue to make history in the women’s soccer industry by having more teams from different continents participating this year. We invite everyone to be part of it and enjoy this special event.”
The host venue Lynn Family Stadium is a 15,304-capacity facility that’s home to Racing Louisville — currently playing its second season — as well as the title-winning USL Championship club Louisville City FC. Lynn Family Stadium opened in 2020 in the Butchertown neighborhood just east of downtown.
