Canada to host crucial Paris 2024 Olympic Games Qualifier in Toronto
Canada Soccer’s Women’s National Team will face Jamaica on Tuesday 26 September in Toronto with a final spot at the Paris 2024 Olympic Games on the line. The critical match, co-presented by CIBC and Visa, will be the second of a home-and-away cumulative goals winner take-all series played between Canada and Jamaica, with the opening match played four days earlier on 22 September in Jamaica.
Tickets to the highly anticipated match, starting at just $15 (plus applicable fees), will go on sale to the public on Friday 21 July, the day following Canada’s opening match at this summer’s FIFA Women’s World Cup™. In advance of the launch of public ticket sales, exclusive presale windows will be available for members of Canada Soccer’s CanadaRED membership programs and Visa cardholders.
“Following this summer’s FIFA Women’s World Cup, the squad will be excited to play such a critical match on home soil”, said Bev Priestman, Women’s National Team Head Coach. “The Olympic Games have such a special place in this team’s heart, so to start that journey at home with our fans after what we hope to be a successful and exciting summer will be amazing.”
Canada and Jamaica qualified for this final phase of Concacaf qualifying for the Paris 2024 Olympic Women’s Football competition by virtue of finishing second and third respectively at last summer’s Concacaf W Championship, which also served as Concacaf’s FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia & New Zealand 2023™ qualification competition. Canada won all three of its group stage matches, and defeated Jamaica 3:0 at the semi-final stage before falling 1:0 to USA in a tightly contested championship match. Jamaica meanwhile outlasted Costa Rica 1:0 (aet) in the third-place match, earing them an opportunity to compete for the final spot at Paris 2024.
