With two different qualifying pathways scheduled for the region, Canada are in a chase for a top-six spot in Concacaf on the FIFA/Coca-Cola World Rankings in order to compete in the Concacaf Hex (nations 1-6) rather than a more demanding alternate route (nations 7-35). Trailing El Salvador by 30 points in July 2019, Canada have already cut that gap in half and now trail by just 14 points after a trio of matches in January 2020. From Concacaf Nations League matches in the Fall, Canada gained more FIFA ranking points than any other nation in League A.
The 27 March 2020 match will be the first international “A” match on Vancouver Island since Canada Soccer’s Women’s National Team played at Victoria’s Centennial Stadium on 4 March 2006. Previously on Vancouver Island, Canada played Olympic Qualifiers in 1983 and 1984 (they qualified for the Los Angeles Men’s Olympic Football Tournament at Victoria’s Royal Athletic Park on 18 April 1984), FIFA World Cup™ Qualifiers in 1985 (on the road to qualifying for the 1986 FIFA World Cup™), and Concacaf Women’s Championship matches in 2002 (on the road to qualifying for the FIFA Women’s World Cup USA 2003™).
