18U Pan Ams: Canada to open tournament on Saturday


Sept 5,2014(ISN) – LA PAZ, Mexico- The Junior National Team will play their first game at the 18U Pan
American Championship/World Cup Qualifier on Saturday, September 6th (Noon EDT) when
they take on the United States at Arturo C. Nahl Stadium in La Paz.

The tournament schedule had to be altered with news that Venezuela would not be
attending the event. To complicate matters, Hurricane Norbert is expected to hit
Baja California which could also impact the schedule that is set to begin on Friday,
September 5th.

Team Canada hit the field today at Arturo C. Nahl Stadium for a brief workout with
rain limiting the team to the use of the outfield surface only. The stadium consists
of artificial turf that should benefit the event with the threat of rain looming.

TUNE IN: All games played at Arturo C. Nahl Stadium in La Paz will be shown live on
National TV in Mexico courtesy of Cable Sports TVC Deportes. People in Canada should
be able to receive a live stream of the televised games by visiting:
