San Diego will see some of the world's best professional soccer players as they compete on their national teams in the inaugural 2024 Concacaf Women's Gold Cup at SDSU's Snapdragon Stadium over the next few weeks.

Why it matters: Hosting this premier tournament is another marker of San Diego's rise to become an international soccer destination that's also helping grow the women's game.

What's happening: Snapdragon hosts Panama, Colombia, Brazil and Puerto Rico women's national teams tonight.

  • Get tickets for their next games on Saturday and Tuesday, Feb 27.
  • The semifinals (March 6) and finals (March 10) will also be played at Snapdragon.

The intrigue: Fans could see a matchup between powerhouses Team USA and Canada as both teams showcase younger talent and look to redeem themselves after underperforming in the World Cup last summer.

Of note: San Diego Wave FC star and USWNT veteran Alex Morgan, initially left off the U.S. roster, was called up after San Diego native Mia Fishel tore her ACL during training earlier this week.

  • SD Wave defenders Abby Dahlkemper and Naomi Girma and forward Jaedyn Shaw are also competing for Team USA.

What we're watching: How San Diego soccer fans will show up for women's sports with the world watching.
