This week in Women's Football: CONCACAF W Championship, NWSL, and more

Women's football fans around the globe are set to enjoy an interesting weekend, mainly because of all the things that will be in play for some of the national teams that will begin their competitions soon.

The first topic of concern for those who follow women's football will be the start of the 2022 UEFA Women's European Championship. The competition will kick off on Wednesday, July 6, giving fans quite a bit of information to follow. As always, you will be able to follow the tournament with our broadcast guides.

Elsewhere, the 2022 NWSL season returns to action after a two-week hiatus, where the USWNT earned most of the headlines. The next batch of games will give fans a chance to get back in gear with the American tournament, especially since things are heating up among the top contenders for the title.

Speaking of the USWNT, the upcoming week will present The Gals with a new challenge, as they will be gunning to win a spot in both the 2023 FIFA Women's World Cup and in the 2024 Summer Olympics as the CONCACAF W Championship gets underway. The Stars and Stripes have won the last two editions of the tournament, but something tells us that this one could be quite competitive given the caliber of all teams involved.

Without further ado, let's have a look at what the beautiful game will offer in terms of women's football matches.

2022 Women's Euro

The top national team tournament in Europe will kick off in the next few days with the clash between England and Austria. A total of 16 teams are ready to fight for the crown currently in possession of the Netherlands. The tournament will come to an end on July 31, 2022, and good moments and great goals will surely come our way.

Here is the schedule for the first five days in this competition.

2022 CONCACAF W Championship

Just as with the European tournament, the North American region will gather their finest teams in Mexico for the CONCACAF W Championship. There are four spots up for grabs to play in the 2023 FIFA Women's World Cup, but that's not all, as the tickets to play in the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris will also be available here. One of thoese spots will be given to the winner of the competition, while the second one will be determined after a playoff between the runners-up and the third place. Teams such as the USWNT, Mexico, Canada, and Costa Rica will be among those to keep an eye on.

Next up, the Red Stars will make it to the Big Apple, where NY/NJ Gotham will be hosting them on Satuday evening, and last, but not least, the San Diego Wave will welcome the Washington Spirit in an attempt to maintain the top spot all to themselves despite the absence of striker Alex Morgan, who will be on International duty with the USWNT.
