Steven Goff of The Washington Post reported today that the Portland Thorns are set to host the Women’s International Champions Cup at Providence Park for the second consecutive year. The details of the tournament are close to being finalized. The competition will likely be played from Aug. 17-20, according to Goff.

The tournament would see the Portland Thorns (2021 NWSL Challenge Cup, NWSL Shield and WICC winners), Washington Spirit (2021 NWSL Champions), Chelsea Football Club (FAWSL winners), and another European domestic champion participate in the competition.

The fourth team has yet to be finalized but Paris-Saint Germain, FC Barcelona and Bayern Munich are candidates, according to the report.

The Thorns did not respond to Goff’s request for a comment and the Spirit and tournament organizer Relevent Sports Group said they did not want to comment.
