The fourth annual She Believes Cup will get underway on February 27, 2019. The United States Women’s National Team along with England are back for 2019 but for the first time France and Germany won’t be involved. Instead they’ll be replaced by the women from Brazil and Japan for the 2019 She Believes Cup.
These three games won’t be the only tune-ups before the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup as the USWNT will play Australia, Belgium, South Africa, New Zealand and Mexico in further friendlies before the World Cup starts in June. The US Women will attempt to defend their title in France come June.
How to Watch or Stream
In the United States all the US games are on either Fox Sports 1 or FOX. Because of that they can all be streamed online through the Fox Sports Go (both the app and the website). If you need a subscription you can subscribe to services like Fubo TV, Sling, YouTube TV, etc. to be able to access the various Fox broadcasts.
If you are across the pond in England, the games will all be available through the various BBC platforms.
