SHEBELIEVES CUP FORMAT AND SCHEDULE
The tournament format for the 2022 SheBelieves Cup will be the same as the previous six years. The winner will be determined by total points (three for a win, one for a draw), with the first tiebreaker being overall goal difference, followed by goals scored, then head-to-head result. If teams are still tied, the next tiebreaker will be the Fair Play ranking based on yellow and red cards.
