U.S. Women’s National Team head coach Vlatko Andonovski has named a 25-player roster for the USA’s annual January training camp that this year will take place in Austin, Texas from Jan. 19-28 at Austin FC's St. David's Performance Center.

This BioSteel training camp marks the first action of 2022 for the USWNT, but it will not include any international matches. While there are no official matches associated with this camp, the USWNT and Austin have a special connection as the USA played the first-ever match at Q2 Stadium. The U.S. Women christened the new stadium on June 16, 2021, in a 2-0 victory against Nigeria in front of a sold-out crowd. U.S. forward Christen Press scored the first-ever goal at the venue.

The game marked the first U.S. Soccer international match in Austin and the first-ever trip to Austin for the USWNT. This camp will be the second.
