Toronto is one of four Official Host Cities for the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup Canada 2014, which is scheduled for Aug. 5-24.

The 32-match competition features 16 teams, with seven of those matches to be played in Toronto.

Toronto hosts the opening match at the National Soccer Stadium on Aug. 5.

Canada plays in the opener versus an opponent to be determined through the Official Draw on March 1. The National Soccer Stadium was originally built for the FIFA U-20 World Cup Canada 2007.

In the group phase, Toronto is the site for Group A action for two match days on Aug. 5 and Aug. 8, then a mix of Group C and Group D on Aug. 13. Toronto also hosts a quarterfinal match on Aug. 16.

Toronto has previously served host for international matches in FIFA World Cup Qualifiers, FIFA Women’s World Cup Qualifiers, the FIFA U-20 World Cup, and the FIFA U-17 World Cup.

In 2013, the National Soccer Stadium hosted a record, sold-out crowd for a Canada-U.S. Women’s International Friendly - a match that also unveiled the Official Emblem for the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup Canada 2014.
