England to host annual women’s international tournament

England is set to host a new annual women’s international tournament next year.

The FA released a statement on Thursday that outlined the details of the competition, which will begin in February 2022.

Germany and Spain have been confirmed as two teams for the inaugural edition of the event, while the fourth nation is yet to be announced.

The statement read: “England will welcome three of the world’s top sides next February for the first staging of a new annual invitational women’s tournament.

“The Lionesses will be joined by Germany and Spain, both also ranked in FIFA’s top 10, in the 2022 edition – with the fourth competing nation to be announced soon.

“Fans will be treated to three double-header matches played across seven days in a round-robin format.”

After the tournament in February, Sarina Wiegman’s England will also host the Women’s Euro 2022 tournament in July.

Their qualifying for the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup begins on Friday, when they host North Macedonia at Southampton’s St Mary’s Stadium.
