Women's USAV Cup on July 10,12,14

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (April 25, 2024) The U.S. Women’s National Team, the reigning Olympic champion, will play three matches this July against world No. 10 Netherlands at The Walter Pyramid on the campus of Long Beach State University in California.

This will be the final chance to see the world’s No. 2-ranked team play on U.S. soil before heading to the Paris 2024 Olympic Games to defend its title. The USA Volleyball Cup will take place at 7 p.m. PT on July 10 and July 12 and at 4 p.m. on July 14 and is expected to sell out, as it did in 2022.

“This will be our Olympic Team’s final tuneup before we depart for France,” U.S. Head Coach Karch Kiraly said. “It will also be a great chance for our fans to show their support, and for our team to express its gratitude and appreciation. We hope to see as many of you as possible there, so let’s Pack the Pyramid, and Prep for Paris!” 

The U.S. Women beat Netherlands for the bronze medal at the Rio de Janeiro 2016 Olympic Games.  Netherlands had its revenge at the 2018 World Championship when it beat the U.S. Women in the third round, eliminating the team from medal contention. The last time the two teams played was at the 2021 Volleyball Nations League preliminary round, when the U.S. won 3-0.

Although the U.S. Women’s Olympic Team has not yet been named, players competing at the USAV Cup will come from the current National Team (see roster below).

Fans attending the USA Volleyball Cup are encouraged to come clad in red, white and blue in support of the U.S. Women.

Immediately following the match on July 14, the U.S. Men’s National Team will join the U.S. Women on the court for an Olympic sendoff celebration.  The U.S. Men are also ranked No. 2 in the world and will look for their fourth gold medal in Paris.
