“It was a real mature performance from our boys and a great start to build on for the rest of the tournament,” said Canada U-15 Coach Mike Vitulano. “We are already looking at some growth areas to prepare for the Monday match against a strong Guatemala side.”
Canada will face Guatemala on Monday 7 August and then Panama on Tuesday 8 August across their group phase at the Estadio Olímpico Félix Sánchez in Santo Domingo. From there, two nations from each of four groups will advance to the Thursday Quarterfinals and then the top-four nations will play on both Friday 11 August in the Concacaf Semifinals and Sunday 13 August in either the Match for 3rd Place or the Concacaf Final.
Every match will be broadcast live on Concacafgo, with extended coverage across Canada Soccer’s channels from CanadaSoccer.com to Facebook, Instagram, Threads, TikTok, Twitter and Youtube featuring the hashtags #canm15.
This Canada’s third participation at the Concacaf Boys’ Under-15 Championship, having reached the Concacaf Semifinals in both 2017 and 2019 (there was no tournament in 2021 because of the global pandemic). Matches are 70 minutes long and Canada will train with a squad of 22 players including four alternates, with all players in the competition born 2008 or later.
