BC Soccer wishes GOOD LUCK to our Canadian Women's National Team

The FIFA Women's World Cup opens Friday in France with the hosts battling South Korea

Vancouver BC, June 6, 2019

On behalf of our membership, and soccer enthusiasts from across the province, BC Soccer would like to wish our Canadian Women's National team "Bonne Chance" (good luck) in France.  

4 years ago, Canada hosted the world in the most successful Women's World Cup in history, culminating in the most watched final in tournament history, when the United States edged Japan at BC Place with 23 million viewers looking on.

Now Canada embarks on their latest World Cup journey, riding a wave of results that has seen them undefeated in 2019, with 5 wins and 2 draws, including a 3-0 victory over Mexico in their sendoff game at BMO field.
