For the second consecutive year, Red Bull Arena will host the U.S. women’s national team in the SheBelieves Cup at Red Bull Arena Sunday, March 4.

Second-ranked Germany, third-ranked England and sixth-ranked France will once again join the top-ranked U.S. in a tournament that features international women’s soccer powers and many of the world’s best players in the six-game competition.

The competition kicks off with England opening against France on Thursday, March 1 at MAPFRE Stadium (4 p.m. ET), followed by the USA against Germany (7 p.m. ET on ESPN2) in a battle of the defending World Cup and Olympic champions.

On Sunday, March 4 in Harrison, N.J. the Americans will take on France (12 p.m. ET on ESPN2) followed by Germany vs. England (3 p.m. ET).

The tournament will finish on Wednesday, March 7, at Orlando City Stadium in Orlando, Fla. as France takes on Germany (4 p.m. ET) followed by the tournament finale vs. England (7 p.m. ET on ESPNews).

The Americans won the inaugural edition in 2016, while France captured the 2017 tournament.

The U.S. finished a disappointing fourth last year.
