With less than 20 days left in the countdown to Canada’s opening match of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™, Canada Soccer has launched #WeCan Viewing Party Kits to enhance fans’ live viewing experience as they cheer for their favourite team.

As Canadians come together from coast-to-coast-to-coast to support Canada at the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™, the #WeCAN Viewing Party Kits have been created to enhance events of all types. From gatherings of family and friends in Canadian living rooms, to community soccer clubs and teams coming together, as well as businesses and establishments looking to show their #CanadaRED colours.

“Our viewing party kits have been designed to help elevate the experience and help forge indelible memories,” said Earl Cochrane, Canada Soccer General Secretary. “Canada Soccer is committed to providing a range of products and experiences in Doha and at home that will deliver an unparalleled experience for our fans as we get ready to kick off in Qatar.”

Each of the #WeCAN Viewing Party Kits comes with exclusive licensed Canada Soccer products, including Canada Soccer pennant banners, 10 souvenir cups, 10 #WeCAN rally towels, 10 Canada Soccer temporary tattoos, 10 “banger banner” noisemakers, 10 coasters, a Canada Soccer decal sheet, a Men’s National Team poster, and a digital marketing toolkit. Event organisers looking for larger quantities are invited to purchase multiple kits. The kits are available for purchase now via the Canada Soccer Store.

In addition to the #WeCAN Viewing Party Kits, Canada fans can now also download Digital Toolkits. This visually stunning collection of assets can be downloaded and printed as Canadians create their own viewing experiences and includes Mobile + Desktop Wallpapers, a FIFA World Cup themed Word Search, and Print-at-home fan cards to show the world that WeCAN! More activities and items will be made available as we get closer to kickoff! Access the Digital Toolkits here: Canada Soccer Digital Toolkit.

Online, Canada Soccer fans will be able to connect to our FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ digital hub at CanadaSoccer.com for access to official team content including the final squad selection in mid-November, as well as discover our bespoke Countdown-to-Kickoff Clock.
