The atmosphere of the FIFA Women’s World Cup is not to be missed. With Canada having a solid chance at making it to the final, the city is gearing up for one hell of a party, and because so many of the matches are played on our home turf, viewing opportunities are endless.

BC Place will play host to nine games with the first two Monday night in an exciting double-header. Another double-header on Friday leads into the much anticipated Nigeria vs. United States game on Tuesday and then onto the preliminary finals with rounds of 16. Vancouver will also host a Quarter Final match on June 27, then the tournament will reach a fever pitch on July 5 as two teams go head-to-head for the World Cup.

If a ticket to stand field-side isn’t an option, the City of Vancouver is hosting an impressive Fan Zone at Larwill Park Downtown, screening many matches and entertaining guests with musical performances, soccer games and other activities.
