Canada Soccer’s Women’s National Team will face Korea Republic in a Women’s International Friendly match presented by GE Appliances Canada. The Sunday 26 June match at BMO Field in Toronto, Ontario will help Canada prepare for the upcoming Concacaf W Championship which doubles as both the qualification route for the FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia & New Zealand 2023 as well as the Paris 2024 Olympic Games. The Concacaf W Championship’s Group Stage will see Canada face Trinidad and Tobago on 5 July, Panama on 8 July, and Costa Rica on 11 July.

“This summer is a critical part of our new mountain and so we are pleased to secure a home game against a difficult side such as Korea Republic as part of our final preparations for the new Concacaf Championship tournament as well as face an Asian opponent ahead of the FIFA Women’s World Cup,” said Bev Priestman, Women’s National Team Head Coach.  “We love playing at home in front of our fans and it will give us the perfect send off and motivation to give both the World Cup and the early qualification for the Olympics our best shot.”
