Arnold Clark Cup 2023: England Lionesses tournament fixture schedule, TV channels, squads & guide

Everything you need to know as the European champions host Belgium, Italy and South Korea in the second edition of this competition.

The England women’s national team will welcome Belgium, Italy and South Korea in February 2023 for the Arnold Clark Cup, the second edition of its invitational international tournament.

Last year, the Lionesses won the trophy, topping the standings ahead of Olympic champions Canada, a Spain side that gave them one of their toughest tests of Euro 2022 and a Germany side they would meet – and beat – in the final.

This time around, the European champions face a trio of lower-ranked nations in comparison to 2022’s star-studded line-up, but each will present a different test ahead of the 2023 Women’s World Cup.

South Korea and Italy have both qualified for the tournament in Australia and New Zealand, while Belgium return to England after enjoying a successful Euros campaign that took them to the knockout rounds for the first time in the team’s history.

The tournament will take place in three venues in England: Stadium MK in Milton Keynes, the CBS Arena that is home to Coventry City and Bristol City’s Ashton Gate.

Games will take place on February 16, February 19 and February 22, in the form of double headers, and the winner of the round-robin competition will be the team at the top of the standings after each has played one another.

England’s games are broadcasted on ITV in the United Kingdom and the entire Arnold Clark Cup 2023 schedule will be live across its channels and platforms.

It has not yet been confirmed which specific channel each game will be on, but this is expected to be announced nearer to the tournament’s start date.

In 2022, broadcast deals were also agreed in a number of other territories worldwide, while all other parts of the world were able to watch the games on the FA Player for free. More details on whether this will be the case again have yet to be revealed.

It is anticipated that each nation will announce its squad for the Arnold Clark Cup 2023 in early February.
