Canada Soccer – Canada Soccer confirms Women’s International Friendly against Netherlands

14 March 2016

Canada will face Netherlands in a 2016 Women’s International Friendly match on 10 April in Eindhoven, Netherlands. The international soccer match will serve as part of Canada’s preparations for the upcoming Rio 2016 Women’s Olympic Football Tournament.

This year marks Canada Soccer’s third-consecutive participation at the Olympic Games. Following a first-place finish at the recent Algarve Cup, Canada’s preparatory schedule features the away friendly against Netherlands and a pair of home send-off matches against Brazil. Canada Soccer’s Road to Rio matches against Brazil are 4 June in Toronto and 7 June in Ottawa (tickets on sale 22 March via canadasoccer.com/tickets).

The Canada-Netherlands match will be played at the Jan Louwers Stadion in Eindhoven with a 16.00 local kick off. This marks the two nations first encounter since an exciting 1:1 draw in the group phase of last year’s FIFA Women’s World Cup Canada 2015.

Both Canada and Netherlands were among the best nations in the world in 2016, with Canada in sixth place and Netherlands in 13th place at the FIFA Women’s World Cup Canada 2015. For the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, Canada have qualified through a second-place finish at the CONCACAF Women’s Olympic Qualifying Tournament while Netherlands were eliminated in a UEFA playoff. Looking ahead, Netherlands are hosts of the upcoming UEFA Women’s EURO 2017.
