Posted on 28 February 2006 in Women's National Team / Olympic Team

Ottawa, Ontario – Canada's Women's National Team Head Coach, Even Pellerud, has released his 17-woman roster for the two matches against the Netherlands on March 1 and 4, 2006 in Vancouver and Victoria, BC.

The first match of the two-game series will take place on March 1, 2006 at Thunderbird Stadium on the campus of the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, BC. Kickoff has been scheduled for 7pm PT.

The second will be played on March 4, 2006 at Centennial Stadium on the campus of the University of Victoria in Victoria, BC. Kickoff time has been set for 1pm PT. The match will be broadcasted live (on all regional channels) by Rogers Sportsnet.

“Both Mexico and Holland are quality opponents and I am expecting strong opposition in all 4 games.

“This is an excellent opportunity for more than 20 of our best athletes the chance to showcase their abilities and soccer fitness at this time of the year.

“It is exciting that a country like Holland, with such a strong soccer culture has decided to have a 10 day camp here in BC, and as hosts we are looking forward to playing in front of TV cameras and hopefully stands full of fans – at both UBC and in Victoria.”
