    VANCOUVER – The Canadian Soccer Association announced Thursday that its women’s national team will host Mexico in an international friendly match at BC Place in Vancouver on November 24, 2013.

    Vancouver is one of the six Official Host Cities for the FIFA Women’s World Cup Canada 2015.

    It will be the first meeting between the sides since Canada booked its ticket to the 2012 Olympic Games with a 3-1 win at the CONCACAF Women’s Olympic Qualifying tournament, also in Vancouver, on January 27, 2012. 

    “The Canadian Soccer Association is thrilled to have the Women’s National Team host an International Friendly at BC Place in Vancouver this November,” said Peter Montopoli, Canadian Soccer Association General Secretary. “We look forward to building on the momentum of hosting matches at home and are confident Vancouver will once again show its passion for the beautiful game just as it did in January 2012 when record crowds attended the CONCACAF Women’s Olympic Qualifying tournament.

    “This match will not only serve as great preparation for the Women’s National Team, but also for the city of Vancouver as both prepare for the FIFA Women’s World Cup Canada 2015.”

     Canada leads the all-time series with 17 wins to Mexico’s one dating back to 1994.
