The torrid women’s soccer rivalry that is Canada vs. USA will soon heat up once again on May 8 when the sides clash in Winnipeg, a host city for the FIFA Women’s World Cup Canada 2015.

This international friendly marks the first women's national team home match in Winnipeg since 1990, when Canada hosted its first-ever international match in the Manitoba capital.

“Every time we come into these games against USA, we want to be the team that stops them, stops their unbeaten streak,” said John Herdman, head coach of Canada’s Women’s National Team. “They’re an absolute machine but at some point someone’s going to trip them up. We are hoping that with our fans behind us and cheering us on, we can do that in Winnipeg in May.”

“We are thrilled to bring world-class women’s soccer back to Winnipeg and look forward to giving the fans in Manitoba a chance to come and support Canada’s Women’s National Team on the road to Canada 2015," said Peter Montopoli, general secretary of the Canadian Soccer Association.
