The 2012 CONCACAF (“Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football”) Olympic women’s qualifying tournament gets underway at BC Place tomorrow and will run until January 29, 2012.
All eight CONCACAF teams will be vying for one of two spots available at the London 2012 Olympics. Group A features Canada, Costa Rica, Cuba and Haiti while Group B features USA, Mexico, Guatemala and Dominican Republic [source: Canada Soccer].
Cheer on Team Canada starting tomorrow as they take on Haiti at 7:30pm Pacific Time. After that they play Cuba on Saturday, Costa Rica on Monday, and the semi-finals will be on Friday with the finals on Sunday, January 29th. All games will be broadcast on Sportsnet, check local listings to be sure.
Tickets are available for purchase if you would like to attend any of the matches. They start at just $10 and you can get packages starting at $69. Find out more from Canada Soccer including information about family rates and group ticket purchases. I know the Southsiders will be there to support our national team as well, in section 249.
