Canadas Womens National Soccer Team Returns Home to Face Brazil in Montreal and Halifax

CANWNT

Canada Soccer’s Women’s National Team is set to return to their home turf for exciting matches against Brazil. The first game will take place on Saturday, October 28, at Stade Saputo in Montreal, followed by the second game on Tuesday, October 31, at Wanderers Grounds in Halifax. These matches mark Canada’s first steps following their successful qualification for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games during last month’s home-and-away Concacaf W Olympic Play-In qualification series.

Public ticket sales for these highly anticipated matches will commence on Saturday, October 14. Ahead of the general sale, exclusive presale windows will be available for members of Canada Soccer’s CanadaRED membership programs and Visa cardholders.

Bev Priestman, Head Coach of Canada Soccer’s Women’s National Team, expressed her excitement, saying, ‘We are thrilled to begin our new Olympic journey against Brazil, a team with whom we share a rich Olympic history. Playing in front of our fans at home, following our fantastic experience in September, provides the perfect platform for us to continue building towards Paris 2024.’

The first game of the Canada-Brazil series will kick off at 14:30 ET on October 28, presented by GE Canada. This marks Canada’s return to Montreal for the first time since their victory over New Zealand in October 2021 as part of Canada’s Celebration Tour following their historic Gold Medal achievement at the Tokyo Olympics.

The second leg of the series is scheduled for a 19:30 AT kick-off on October 31 in Halifax. This marks the return of Canada Soccer’s Senior National Teams to the Maritimes for the first time since Canada’s Women’s National Team defeated China PR 1-0 in Moncton in the spring of 2012.

Canada was the fifth nation to secure a spot in the Paris 2024 Olympic Games, joining the hosts France, Concacaf champions USA, and CONMEBOL’s top-two nations Brazil and Colombia. Seven more nations have yet to qualify for the field of 12 nations participating in next year’s prestigious event, with Canada being the reigning Olympic champions from 2021.

Canada has a long-standing history with Brazil, with their first encounter dating back to 1996. Over the years, both teams have been evenly matched, with Canada holding a record of 10 wins, nine draws, and 10 losses against Brazil. Their most recent meeting took place on February 19, 2023, at the She Believes Cup, where Canada secured a 2-0 victory over Brazil, courtesy of goals from Vanessa Gilles and Evelyne Viens.
