Every four years takes place the FIFA Women World Cup. This year, the competition is hosted by our beautiful country, Canada!
Soccer is a very popular sport all around the world and particularly in Europe, but mostly for men. Women’s soccer is more common in North America than in Europe, but the world’s cup is becoming more reputed for some years. It will begin the 6th of June with the opening ceremony and the first match will oppose Canada and China in Edmonton, and end the 5th of July with the finale in Vancouver.
The whole competition will take place in 6 different cities across Canada:
- Common Wealth Stadium in Edmonton, Alberta

- Investors Group Field in Winnipeg, Manitoba
- TD Place Stadium in Ottawa, Ontario
- Moncton Stadium in Moncton, New-Brunswick
