26 February will mark 100 days “To a Greater Goal™” at the FIFA Women’s World Cup Canada 2015™, with celebrations from coast to coast in the six Host Cities of Vancouver, British Columbia; Edmonton, Alberta; Winnipeg, Manitoba; Ottawa, Ontario; Montreal, Quebec; and Moncton, New Brunswick.

To celebrate this milestone, a range of facts, clips, interviews and documents have been put together to give fans a taste of what they can look forward to in the lead-up to and during the event.

A selection of 100 fantastic goals from the previous six FIFA Women’s World Cups can be viewed via FIFA on YouTube. Fans can also follow all the build-up to the FIFA Women’s World Cup on Facebook* and on Twitter @FIFAWWC, and FIFA will also be sharing the very best photos during the tournament on Instagram*.

In exclusive video interviews, FIFA’s female Executive Committee members Lydia Nsekera, Sonia Bien Aime and Moya Dodd share their expectations for the tournament, as does Steffi Jones, President of Germany 2011 and a FIFA Women’s World Cup winner in 2003. Victor Montagliani, Chairman of the FIFA Women’s World Cup Canada 2015 National Organizing Committee (NOC), also talks to FIFA.com about Canada’s preparations and what will make this tournament so special.

With 100 days to go, more than half a million fans have already claimed their seats for the FIFA Women’s World Cup Canada 2015™. The VISA pre-sale period alone provided over 100,000 fans with the opportunity to secure their spot to catch the action live.

Individual tickets will go on sale on 26 February (12.00 ET / 18.00 CET) to give fans “100 opportunities” to be part of the biggest and most important women’s football event. Ticket prices will start from as low as CAD $20.15.

In Canada, the six Host Cities will unveil scarves featuring the official slogan “To a Greater Goal™” to kick off a scarf campaign that will continue through the tournament. FIFA President Blatter is featured in the launch of the campaign, which will present prominent personalities from the world of football and beyond sharing their “Greater Goals”. To celebrate 100 days until Canada welcomes the world, the nation will go red, an iconic Canadian colour, with notable buildings lit up in red in the six Host Cities.
