“Canada Soccer is thrilled to be returning to the nation’s capital with our Women’s National Team to play Brazil, who we faced in the Bronze Medal match at the 2016 Rio Olympics,” said Peter Montopoli, Canada Soccer General Secretary. “Ottawa has always supported this team, as they did in 2016 when over twenty thousand fans came out to send them off to Rio, and we are confident we’ll have an excellent crowd again for this rematch.”
Canada Soccer’s Women’s National Team last match against Brazil saw Canada defeat the home side at Rio 2016 Olympic Games to take the Olympic Bronze Medal. Canada’s back-to-back podium finishes at the London 2012 and Rio 2016 Olympic Games earned them the distinction of becoming the first Canadian team to win back-to-back Summer Olympic medals since 1908, and the first-ever women’s Canadian team to repeat on the podium. Canada also faced Brazil in Toronto and Ottawa ahead of the Rio Olympics, splitting the series 1-1, including Canada’s send-off final match in Ottawa which saw the home team defeat Brazil 1-0, with Janine Beckie scoring in the 90th minute to secure the win in front of 23,588 fans TD Place.
