Olympic soccer event groups were announced

Yesterday afternoon, the 2024 Olympic Draw took place. The US Women’s National Team and the USMNT U-23s found out who they would play in the group stage of the Olympics this summer.

The USWNT was in Pot 1 because it was the fourth-best team in the world. The USWNT was put in Group B with Germany, Australia, and the winner of the shootout between Zambia and Morocco in Africa. Because Pot 1 also had France and Spain, who couldn’t be paired with Germany, Germany was sure to be in the group with the USWNT. They were put in Group B with the United States because of this.

There are still two teams to be chosen for the women’s football Olympic field. Which of Morocco, Zambia, South Africa, or Nigeria will make the team will depend on the African qualifying next month. The USWNT’s first game at the Olympics will be against either Morocco or Zambia.
