The event will feature six teams, including both the U.S. senior and U19 teams, along with teams from England, Japan, Fresno State and Stanford. The complete schedule and ticket information will be announced soon.
The U.S. roster features 11 former World Cup champions, including three-time Tewaaraton winner Taylor Cummings and two-time Tewaaraton winner Katie Haus out of Maryland, and eight current collegiate players, led by the 2018 Tewaaraton winner out of Boston College, Sam Apuzzo.

Two players with strong California connections are competing for the senior team as well. Defender Kristen Carr, a two-time World Cup champion out of North Carolina, is currently an assistant coach at Stanford, whose head coach, Amy Bokker, helped the U.S. team win a pair of gold medals as an assistant coach. Kerrigan Miller, a junior at USC, was a member of the 2015 U.S. U19 team and will be playing in her first U.S. competition since helping the U.S. win the silver medal that summer.
Miller will be joined by another player returning to the the U.S. fold, attacker Katrina Dowd. Dowd, who helped Northwestern win three national championships, was the leading goal scorer for the 2013 U.S. senior team when she earned all-world honors. Dowd, an assistant coach for Canada at the 2017 World Cup, is back at North Carolina as associate head coach after serving as head coach at Oregon the last two seasons.
