We all may have heard that Vancouver is hosting the FIFA Women’s World Cup. This event has been one of Canada’s largest! If you have been to Coal Harbour you can see a stage set up for our native city to host matches. Have you been at Cambie and Georgia for the free fan zone celebration? Many sponsors are at the fan zone like Adidas, Budweiser, Coca-Cola, KIA Motors, Trend Micro. Some activates include live music, Soccer demos, meeting the athletes, contests and many more. For more information look for the hashtag #VanFanZone on social media sites.
An update on how Canada is doing, “Canada, ranked 8th in FIFA’s world rankings, had a bittersweet opening round. With one win and two ties, the Canadian women got the job done and won their group, but they would have preferred to accomplish it with some more flare.” (Vancitybuzz, 2015)
The upcoming soccer match will be on Sunday, Canada VS Switzerland airing on CTV at 4:30pm. The game takes place at BC Place Stadium with over 50,000 excited fans predicted to attend.
