USWNT to play Germany, Australia and CAF qualifier at Paris Olympics



The United States will face CAF Qualifier Morocco or Zambia, Germany and  Australia in Group B at the 2024 Olympic Women’s Soccer Tournament taking place from July 25-Aug. 10 in seven cities and at seven venues throughout France.

Germany, which earned its Olympic berth by finishing third in the 2024 UEFA Women’s National League, is currently fifth in the current FIFA Women’s World Rankings while Australia is 12th. Morocco and Zambia will meet in a two-leg playoff during the April international window with the winner qualifying for the 2024 Olympics. Morocco is ranked 58th in the world and is looking to make its Olympic debut while Zambia is ranked 65th and debuted at the delayed Tokyo Olympics in 2021. The USA is ranked fourth in the world.

The U.S. will open Group B play on July 25 – one day before the Olympic Opening Ceremonies – against either Morocco or Zambia (9 p.m. local / 3 p.m. ET) at Stade de Nice in Nice. The Americans will then travel to Marseille to their second match at Stade de Marseille and will face Germany on July 28 (9 p.m. local / 3 p.m. ET). The USA will finish group play against Australia on July 31 (7 p.m. local / 1 p.m. ET) at Stade de Marseille. Located in the south for France, Nice is nearly 600 miles from Paris near France’s border with Monaco and Italy. Marseille, located 125 miles west of Nice, is the second-largest city in France.

For the first time since 2008, two American teams will be competing in the Olympics as the Under-23 Men’s Youth National Team also qualified for Paris. The young Americans were drawn into Group A and will play their second group stage match against New Zealand on July 27 in Marseille, one day before the American women face Germany at the same venue.
