TRUE NORTH STRONG AND FREEEEEE~

Canada is lone bidder for 2015 Women's World Cup




The Canadian Press

FIFA says Zimbabwe has withdrawn its bid to host the Women's World Cup in 2015, leaving Canada as the only candidate.

Canada's bid must be evaluated and approved by the FIFA executive meeting when it meets on Wednesday and Thursday.

Canadian sports minister Gary Lunn met with FIFA President Sepp Blatter on Monday to promote his country's bid.

If successful, Canada also would stage the Women's Under-20 World Cup in 2014 as a test event.

Canada previously hosted the men's U20 World Cup in 2007.

Its women's team also has qualified for the 16-team 2011 World Cup kicking off on June 26 in Germany.

Well, the bid still has to be evaluated and approved but I can't think of anything that might get in our way... except Don Cherry and an overzealous moose :/
