The 2013 Cyprus Women's Cup was the sixth edition of the Cyprus Women's Cup, an invitational women's football tournament held annually in Cyprus. It took place between March 3–14, 2013.[1]

Defending champions France cancelled their participation just after the UEFA Women's Euro 2013 draw, because of too many European opponents in the tournament.[2] The tournament was won by England.[3]

Format[edit]

The twelve invited teams are split into three groups that played a round-robin tournament.

Groups A and B, containing the strongest ranked teams, are the only ones in contention to win the title. The group winners from A and B contested the final, with the runners-up playing for third place. The Group C winner faced the better 3rd place team from Groups A and B for 5th, with the Group C runner-up facing the other third place team for 7th. Group C's third place team faced the better fourth place team of Groups A and B, while the other two 4th place teams play in the 11th place match.

Points awarded in the group stage followed the standard formula of three points for a win, one point for a draw and zero points for a loss. In the case of two teams being tied on the same amount of points in a group, their head-to-head result determined the higher place.
