June 6, 2015. That’s the day the next World Cup begins, and it’s now one year away.
Canada celebrates the one-year out mark on Friday with the unveiling of clocks counting down to the occasion, with the slogan, “One Year To A Greater Goal.”
Each of the six host cities will have countdown clocks looking toward that June 6, 2015, kickoff. The six locations are BC Place in Vancouver, City Hall in Edmonton, The Forks in Winnipeg, City Hall in Ottawa, Centre Pierre-Charbonneau in Montréal, and Champlain Place mall in Moncton.
“Momentum is building towards next year’s FIFA Women’s World Cup Canada 2015, incredibly now just a year away,” said Victor Montagliani, Chairman of the National Organising Committee. “These countdown clocks give fans an opportunity to get engaged in this once-in-a-lifetime event for Canada.”
The World Cup draw will take place on Dec. 6 in Ottawa.
