(TORONTO, ONT.) – Wheelchair Basketball Canada’s senior men’s team will play host to the Netherlands in a Feature Game on Saturday, July 2, at the Toronto Pan Am Sports Centre in Scarborough, Ont. The Feature Game, which will tip-off at 4:00 p.m. ET, is free and open to the public.   

The game against the Netherlands will serve as part of Team Canada’s preparation for the IWBF Americas Cup in São Paulo, Brazil, where Canada will compete in qualifying for the IWBF World Championships.

The Americas Cup (July 13-18) will see Canada’s men’s team play in Group B with Argentina, Brazil, and Mexico. The top four men’s teams will earn the right to represent the IWBF Americas in Dubai at the World Championships (Nov. 16-27, 2022).
