The world's best women's football players will be competing when Women's Super League teams Manchester City, Leicester City and West Ham United, and Division 1 Féminine's Paris Saint-Germain go head-to-head in an epic round-robin style competition this winter.

Taking place at the newly upgraded HBF Park and award-winning Optus Stadium, 4 matches will be held between 28 August and 1 September:

  • Manchester City v Leicester City on Wednesday, 28 August at HBF Park
  • West Ham United v Paris Saint-Germain on Thursday, 29 August at HBF Park
  • Double header with Manchester City, Leicester City, West Ham United and Paris Saint-Germain on Sunday, 1 September at Optus Stadium.

Star Matildas players Mary Fowler, Alanna Kennedy, Mackenzie Arnold, Katrina Gorry, Clare Hunt and Courtney Nevin are among the current footballers who will travel to Perth as part of the competition, following the 2024 Paris Olympics.

As part of the tournament, each team and their players will participate in engagement activities surrounding the matches, in a week-long festival of football.

This Australia-first event is anticipated to attract thousands of out-of-state visitors and generate millions in visitor spend, supporting local tourism and hospitality businesses, and further build on Western Australia's always on, year-round calendar of blockbuster events.

It also joins a string of successful football events successfully hosted in Perth, including the recent Italian football match at Optus Stadium that attracted over 56,000 fans and the Matildas' Olympic Qualifier series last year, which saw a record-breaking crowd of 59,155.
