The 2021 edition of the tournament will be held in Ohio, followed by back-to-back competitions in 2023. and 2024.

The Men's Ryder Cup, also a biennial event between Europe and the United States, was postponed from 2020 to 2021 because of Covid-19 and will now be played in odd years from now on.

Europe claimed a 14½-13½ victory over the US in the 2019 Solheim Cup.

The 2023 tournament will be held in Spain, while the 2024 tournament will be held in the United States.

"When the game returns to the United States in 2024, I have no doubt that fans will have an incredible opportunity to celebrate the best female golfers from the United States and Europe if they represent their homeland. "
