Canada’s May 8 home match against the United States is on as scheduled after flooding at the Winnipeg stadium slated to host the friendly.
Investors Group Field, which will host Women’s World Cup matches next year and is already home to the CFL’s Winnipeg Blue Bombers, took on damage to luxury suites and the visitors’ locker rooms after the spring melt caused flooding. But a spokeswoman from the Canadian Soccer Association told the Winnipeg Free Press that everything is going forward as planned.
“We’re in constant communication with the staff working at the stadium and everything was under control from the beginning. Nothing has impacted our planning,” she said.
Over 22,500 tickets have been sold for the match, according to the Free Press.
The match will be streamed live online in the U.S. on ESPN3.com and espnW.com.
