Canada Soccer’s Women’s National Team will travel to Cadiz, Spain during the October 2022 FIFA international window to face Argentina and Morocco in a pair of international “A” friendly matches. Canada will first face Argentina on Thursday 6 October and will later play Morocco on Monday 10 October 2022. Both matches will be played at Estadio Municipal de Chapín in Jerez, Spain. 

“This window gives us the opportunity to experience different styles of opposition that will come with the expanded 32-nation FIFA Women’s World Cup,“ said Bev Priestman, Canada Soccer’s Women’s National Team Head Coach. “I’m glad we secured two nations that have qualified and who we could very much face next summer. There are still some players missing with injuries and so I hope we can continue to assess players in the wider pool and see them take their opportunity to step up as we saw many do in Australia. This is the last window before the FIFA Women’s World Cup draw and so from this window we are excited to learn our path and finalise 2022-2023 planning”

Canada won both of their matches in the September window against Australia, a 1:0 victory on Saturday 3 September and the 2:1 victory on Tuesday 6 September 2022. They were Canada’s first two international matches since the Concacaf W Championship as the squad now focuses squarely on the FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia & New Zealand 2023.

The FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia & New Zealand 2023™, which will be held from 20 July 2023 to 20 August 2023, will see 30 nations join the hosts Australia and New Zealand who have already qualified for the biggest tournament in the world. The FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 will be a tournament of firsts. In 2023, fans will see 32 nations playing 64 matches across nine host cities in Australia and New Zealand for the first time in Women’s World Cup history.

CANADA SOCCER’S WOMEN’S NATIONAL TEAM

Canada are Olympic champions (Tokyo 2020), two-time bronze medal winners (2012 and 2016), and two-time Concacaf champions (1998 and 2010). In all, Canada have participated in seven consecutive editions of the FIFA Women’s World Cup™ (1995 to 2019) and four consecutive editions of the Women’s Olympic Football Tournament (2008 to 2021). At Tokyo 2020, Canada Soccer’s Women’s National Team became the first Canadian team to win three consecutive medals at the Summer Olympic Games and just the third nation in the world to win three medals in women’s soccer.

Canada Soccer’s Women’s National Youth Teams, meanwhile, have won four Concacaf youth titles: the 2004 and 2008 Concacaf Women’s Under-20 Championship, the 2010 Concacaf Women’s Under-17 Championship, and the 2014 Concacaf Girls’ Under-15 Championship. Canada have qualified for eight editions of the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup (including a silver medal at Canada 2002) and all seven editions of the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup (including a fourth-place finish at Uruguay 2018).
