This article has been shared with the permission of Goal
The England women's national team will welcome Belgium, Italy and South Korea in February 2023 for the Arnold Clark Cup, the second edition of its invitational international tournament.
This time around, the European champions face a trio of lower-ranked nations in comparison to 2022's star-studded line-up, but each will present a different test ahead of the 2023 Women's World Cup.
Where will the Arnold Clark Cup 2023 be played?
Once again, the tournament will take place in three stadiums in England.
Stadium MK in Milton Keynes, which hosted games at Euro 2022 - including the semi-final between Germany and France, will host the first two games.
The CBS Arena, home to men's Championship side Coventry City, will be the venue for the second games while Bristol City's Ashton Gate hosts the final two fixtures.
When is the Arnold Clark Cup 2023?
The tournament will begin on February 16, with further games to come on February 19 before the final matches take place on February 22.
Games will take place in double headers, with each pair of fixtures on each day to be played one after the other at the same venue.
The winner of the round-robin competition will be the team at the top of the standings after each has played one another.
Arnold Clark Cup 2023 TV channel, live stream & how to watch
England's games are broadcasted on ITV in the United Kingdom and the entire Arnold Clark Cup 2023 schedule will be live across its channels and platforms.
It has not yet been confirmed which specific channel each game will be on, but this is expected to be announced nearer to the tournament's start date.
In 2022, broadcast deals were also agreed in a number of other territories worldwide, while all other parts of the world were able to watch the games on the FA Player for free. More details on whether this will be the case again have yet to be revealed.

Arnold Clark Cup 2023 squads
It is anticipated that each nation will announce its squad for the Arnold Clark Cup 2023 in early February.
There will be one notable absentee for England after Beth Mead, who won the Golden Ball and Golden Boot as the Lionesses won Euro 2022, suffered a devastating ACL injury in November.
If included in the Lionesses' squad, captain Leah Williamson will have the chance to play in her hometown of Milton Keynes for the fixture against South Korea.
It is also expected that South Korea's squad will include Ji So-yun, meaning she will return to England for the first time since leaving Chelsea last summer. Ji achieved legendary status during her time with the Blues, winning 13 trophies in eight years.
