She Believes Cup guide for travelling fans

With England’s She Believes Cup campaign getting underway shortly, as part of our Free Lionesses service we’ve pulled together some useful links and information for fans who might be making the journey out to the USA to cheer on Phil Neville’s side, who are aiming to retain the trophy they won in 2019. 

With three matches taking place in Florida, New Jersey and Texas, you’ll be racking up the airmiles if you’re attending each match, but whichever fixture you’re going to we’ve pulled together some of the key information on each venue, along with a few handy links to get you on your way.

If you have any questions about the tournament, or links to useful information that we should include in our guide, drop us an email or find @FreeLionesses on Twitter – otherwise read on to find out about our three host venues this March.
