    OTTAWA – After a series of announcements this week, the Canada women’s national team 2014 calendar is taking on a distinctly high-profile flavor.

    Three of the world’s top sides will visit the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup host for friendlies in a slate released by the Canadian Soccer Association. 

    Current Olympic champion United States will help kick off the schedule on May 8 at Investors Group Field in Winnipeg.

    “In line with the priorities identified in Canada Soccer’s recently introduced 2014-2018 Strategic Plan titled Leading a Soccer Nation, we believe that increasing the number of playing opportunities against quality opponents at home will boost the performance of our National Teams,” said Peter Montopoli, Canada Soccer’s General Secretary. “We are thrilled to bring world-class women’s soccer back to Winnipeg and look forward to giving the fans in Manitoba a chance to come and support Canada’s Women’s National Team on the road to Canada 2015.”

    Canada will host two of the world’s most dominant women’s soccer nations in Vancouver later in the year when it faces Germany and World Cup champion Japan on June 18 and October 28, respectively.  Both games will be played at BC Place, which was the site of the 2012 CONCACAF Women’s Olympic Qualifying tournament. 

    “Vancouver has demonstrated its enthusiasm towards the beautiful game and we are thrilled to bring some of the fiercest opponents international women’s soccer can offer so that our Women’s National Team can experience the support of their home fans again on the road to Canada 2015,” said Victor Montagliani, President of Canada Soccer.

    Japan will also be the opponent on October 25 in Edmonton’s Commonwealth Stadium.

    Winnipeg, Vancouver and Edmonton are all Official Host Cities for the FIFA Women’s World Cup Canada 2015.
