The Algarve Cup is an annual invitation tournament that features 12 Women NTs. Among them usually are the strongest women football nations of the world, hence it is also called the "Mini World Cup". It is held yearly since 1994 and it is the most prestigious women football tournament after the World Cup, Euros and Olympics.

So far the record champions are the US Ladies with 9 wins, and they are the current holders, too, after they defeated the German NT 2:0 in the Algarve Cup 2013.
