In just a matter of hours, we'll be channeling our inner Megan Rapinoe as we tune in for the biggest women’s soccer tournament in years: the 2023 Women's World Cup.

Per the FIFA Women's World Cup website, 32 teams will participate in this year's games, which will take place at 10 different venues in Australia and New Zealand. All 64 matches are scheduled to run from July 20 to August 20, and participating teams include the United States, England, France, Italy, Australia, South Africa, the Netherlands and more.

The first match for the U.S. kicks off on July 21, when they'll face off against Vietnam at Eden Park. But countless fans are already betting on the U.S. Women's National Team to win this summer’s World Cup, thanks to their strong track record. In case you missed it, the team has earned four Women’s World Cup titles, nine CONCACAF Gold Cups and four Olympic gold medals. And this year, they boast an impressive roster of players, including Alex Morgan and Rapinoe, who famously scored three goals and led the U.S. to victory at the 2012 London Olympics.

So, naturally, we've been counting down the days until we get to enjoy these intense soccer matches—and we're sure we're not the only ones. From the full schedule to how to watch the games—both on TV and online—here's our full guide to the 2023 Women's World Cup.

What We're Excited to Watch

Well, for one, we can't wait to see how the USA, aka the world's top-ranking women's team, will fare against the Netherlands, now ranked at number five. And we're especially eager to see USA player Megan Rapinoe's final game, since she announced in July that this will be her last World Cup.

Legendary Brazilian player Marta also confirmed that the upcoming tournament will be her last, so we'll be keeping an eye out for the power forward as well.
