Canada to face Korea DPR in Tuesday group finale in Montréal

96

Canada’s Women’s U-20 Team will fight for survival on Tuesday 12 August in the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup Canada 2014 group finale at Montréal’s Olympic Stadium. A win or draw could be enough to advance to the next round, but a loss for Canada would mean an end to the journey for the host team.

Individual tickets for Tuesday’s match range from $16.50 to $42.25. Fans can also access four tickets for the price of three with the Me+3 package deal available at FIFA.com/Canada2014 or at the Stadium Ticket Office in the Rotunda at Olympic Stadium.

The match will also be broadcast live on CBC.

This Canadian team is not one to go away quietly. On Saturday against Finland, Canada was 45 minutes away from elimination before it exploded for three goals in the second half. It was a memorable victory in front of an ecstatic crowd of 16,503 in Toronto.

The support did not go unnoticed by the players.

“That was for sure the biggest crowd in which I’ve ever played,” said forward Janine Beckie. “It was an incredible feeling. To play in a FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup match at home in front of more than 16,000 people is unbelievable. To have the fans behind us the whole game – even when we were down – they really helped us get that win.”

After two matches in Toronto, Montréal will become the home site for Canada, giving the Canadian players a real home field advantage as they play in front of family, friends, and fans of the beautiful game.

For Montréal, tomorrow’s match is an opportunity to get behind the Canadian team and support them as they fight for the opportunity to play the final match back in the Olympic Stadium on 24 August. Canada last made it to the final in this competition in 2002, when they played the USA in a match that to this day holds the single-game record for fans in attendance – 47,784.
