Tickets now on sale for Canada's Women's National Team Celebration Tour to BC

Olympic Gold Medal Winning group will host Nigeria at BC Place in Vancouver on April 8th, and Langford’s Starlight Stadium on April 11th.

March 18, 2022 – Vancouver BC / Ottawa ON

Two years ago, we were counting down to a Canada – Australia women’s event at BC Place.  A lot has happened since then.

That game (and all others across the world), was cancelled. Then last year, history was made when the Canadian Women defeated Sweden at the Tokyo Olympics to claim a first ever gold medal for our country.

 

BC born and raised penalty winning hero Julia Grosso signed a contract with Italian giants Juventus, while goalkeeper Stephanie Labbé announced her retirement from club and international football.  Canada’s heroic penalty denying goalkeeper will be playing her last games in Canadian colours during this tour and will be honoured during the events.

Christine Sinclair achieved the all-time International goals record during this time, upping her tally to 188 for which she will be recognized in her home province, in what is expected to be a celebration of Women’s Soccer in BC.

 

BC Based head coach Bev Priestman and her group competed in the Arnold Clark Cup last month in England, earning credible results against the hosts (1-1), along with Germany (1-0W) and Spain (0-1L) as those nations prepare for their European Championships this summer. 

Tickets for the two matches are ON SALE NOW via Ticketmaster.ca (Vancouver) (Langford).  Both the Friday 8 April BC Place and Monday 11 April Starlight Stadium matches will kick off at 19.30 local time. Group discounts (10+ tickets) are available for the match at BC Place on Friday 8 April. Fans organizing a group of 10 or more are eligible to receive discounts of up to 30% off regular priced tickets. For more information visit https://canadasoccer.com/choose-your-match/.
