NCAA Women’s College Cup TicketsThe NCAA Women’s College Cup has been the proving ground for FIFA Women’s World Cup stars ever since the North Carolina Tar Heels won its inaugural edition in 1982, defeating the UCF Golden Knights, 2-0, in that season’s title match on the UCF campus in Orlando, Fla. Michelle Akers is one example as she led her UCF squad to the NCAA Women’s College Cup in 1987. Mia Hamm is another. She led her Tar Heels to national championships in 1989, 1990, 1992 and 1993, taking a break to help Akers and the US national team win the inaugural Women’s World Cup in 1991. There’s nothing quite like seeing tomorrow’s stars lead their college teams to glory, and maybe you’ll even be fortunate enough to witness the seventh overtime national championship match. Or, perhaps you’ve decided to buy tickets after learning that your alma mater will be fighting for a national title. Regardless of your reasons, make sure to grab your NCAA Women’s College Cup tickets at StubHub.
Where will the 2020 and 2021 NCAA Women’s College Cup be held?WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary, N.C., is set to host the 2020 edition of this prestigious event.

It’s also just 20 miles from the campus of one of this sport’s powerhouse team, the North Carolina Tar Heels. The NWSL’s North Carolina Courage play home matches here. The 2021 event is scheduled for Avaya Stadium, which is conveniently located just a couple miles from downtown San Jose, Calif. The MLS’ San Jose Earthquakes play here.

Which teams will be playing in the NCAA Women’s College Cup?The four teams that will be participating will not be known until the previous weekend, but it’s a safe bet that at least one of the sport’s historic powerhouses will take part. The North Carolina Tar Heels have played at this event 29 times, winning it on 21 of those occasions. Other historically strong teams include the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, Stanford Cardinal and Florida State Seminoles. Of course, as college soccer fans know well, there are often surprise schools, too. In 2019, that squad was Washington State. The Cougars stunned the women’s soccer world to make it here for the first time when they beat South Carolina in a dramatic contest, 1-0 in overtime.

What is an NCAA Women’s College Cup match like?Those who follow the professional version of the beautiful game will quickly notice that college rules differ from FIFA rules in a number of ways. Some of the most noticeable include the clock counting down, no stoppage time, much more liberal substitution rules and extra time lasting up to 20 minutes, not 30, and being played in a golden goal format.
How many national championship matches have gone to extra time?Stanford knocking off North Carolina in the 2019 NCAA Women’s College Cup final in a penalty shootout after the teams had played to a 0-0 draw was the sixth overtime national championship match in history.
