Catriona Matthew captains Team Europe again, with Pat Hurst leading the home side.
Georgia Hall and captain's pick Celine Boutier were unstoppable for Europe two years ago, and return alongside Solheim Cup stalwarts Charley Hull and Anna Nordqvist. 2020 British Open winner Sophia Popov and 2021 LPGA Mediheal Championship and Gant Ladies' Open champ Matilda Castren are amongst the debutants.
The biggest weapon at Hurst's disposal is, of course, world No. 1 Nelly Korda, one of eight players who also represented Team USA two years ago. She's once again joined by her sister Jessica, as well as Lexi Thompson, Danelle Kang, Ally Ewing, Lizette Salas, Megan Khang and Brittany Altomare.
Rising stars Jennifer Kupcho, Mina Harigae and Yealimi Noh are the three rookies, while LPGA Drive On Championship winner Austin Ernst is back in the team after missing out in 2019.
Follow our guide as we explain how to watch a 2021 Solheim Cup live stream from anywhere.

Solheim Cup live stream: how to watch for FREE and without cable in the US
In the US, coverage of the Solheim Cup is split between NBC and the Golf Channel, with the action bouncing between both channels constantly over the course of the tournament.
If you've got it on cable, simply head to the Golf Channel website and log in with your cable credentials to stream its coverage online.
How to watch Solheim Cup online without cable
Sling TV is perhaps the best value cord-cutting service out there right now. Its Sling Blue plan hosts NBC and the first month currently costs a mere $10 (down from the standard $35), while an $11 Sports Extra add-on nets you the extra Golf Channel coverage as well.
Another great option if all you're after this week is the golf is FuboTV, as it includes both the Golf Channel and NBC in its Starter plan.
At $65 per month, it's pricier than Sling but still a reasonable alternative to traditional cable with the flexibility to cancel at any point - and if you haven't had Fubo before, you can take advantage of its FREE TRIAL and watch the Solheim Cup 2021 without paying a penny, if that's how you choose to play it.
Watch Solheim Cup online from abroad
You needn't find yourself in a pickle if you're abroad either, as using a good VPN as described above will let you watch the streaming services and content you pay for at home, from anywhere in the world. This means you can watch the Solheim Cup 2021 online from anywhere.
How to watch Solheim Cup in the UK - plus free live streams
UK-based golf fans can tune into all of the Solheim Cup action on Sky Sports, but be warned that each day of action concludes at 11pm or later.
Subscribers also get to watch on the move using the Sky Go app, which is available on nearly all modern phones, tablets, laptops, PCs and consoles. For those without Sky, the best option is a Now Sky Sports monthly membership.
But there's some fantastic news for golf lovers watching online...Sky is streaming the whole event absolutely free on its YouTube channel! So if you're watching on your laptop or any device that has a YouTube app (think mobiles, smart TVs, games consoles and pretty much every streaming device) then you're good to go.
Not in the UK this weekend? To access your usual streaming service from outside the UK, you'll need to download a good VPN as detailed above.
Live coverage of the Solheim Cup 2021 is available through the Sky Sports Golf channel from September 4-6, and it's as comprehensive as it gets, starting at 12pm BST for days 1 and 2, and at 4.30pm for day 3.
