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.
