Also announced this week, the National Organising Committee confirmed that the Official Draw for the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup Canada 2014 will take place at the historic Windsor Hotel in Montréal on 1 March 2014.
“We are all thrilled to be hosting this competition in Canada again,” said Peter Montopoli, Chief Executive Officer for the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup Canada 2014. “The last time Canada hosted, back in 2002, we won a silver medal and helped set a still-standing record of 47,784 fans in the final. I have no doubt that Canadians will once again rally behind our U-20 team like they did in 2002.”
The FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup Canada 2014 will feature 16 teams and 32 matches across four Canadian cities: Edmonton, Alberta; Toronto, Ontario; Montréal, Québec; and Moncton, New Brunswick. The competition runs from 5 to 24 August 2014.
“Playing on home soil will provide our young female players with the confidence to deliver their best performance yet, while gaining world-class experience,” said the Honourable Bal Gosal, Minister of State (Sport). “As we approach our country’s 150th anniversary in 2017, we are thrilled to join Canadians in honouring this milestone by supporting the FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup and sharing our nation’s proud, competitive and united spirit under the maple leaf.
”Playing at home is an incredible experience,” said Canadian captain Christine Sinclair. “We are confident Canadians will come out and support the up-and-coming Canadian stars on the U-20 team as they did for us in 2002.”
