China PR have opened camp in preparation for this summer's FIFA Women's World Cup Canada 2015™, which kicks off on 6 June against tournament hosts Canada in Edmonton, Alberta.

Chinese head coach Hao Wei has selected 25 players for this preparatory camp, which runs from 23 January to 13 May. The first stage of the camp takes place at the Guangzhou Tianhe Sports Center. The team will then head to Portugal in late February for the 2015 Algarve Women's Cup which runs from 4-11 March.

All 25 players are aged 26 or younger, with midfielder Ren Guixin the oldest in the group. All but one play club football in China, with 21-year old captain Wu Haiyan the exception (she plays for Sports Toto in Korea Republic).

From coach Hao Wei's selection, the most notable omission is goalkeeper Wang Fei. The 24-year old goalkeeper, however, will start the season training with her professional club in Germany, Turbine Potsdam. Wang Fei is the first Chinese footballer to compete in the Frauen-Bundesliga.

China PR is one of 24 finalists participating in this summer's Women's World Cup. The former runners-up will face Canada, Netherlands and New Zealand in the group stage. Tickets to all matches are available via FIFA.com/Canada2015.
