Canada’s Next 2 World Cup Qualifiers Moved to US
Canada will play its next two World Cup qualifiers in the United States due to coronavirus travel restrictions. The Canadians’ road game against Aruba on June 5 will be played at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida. The June 8 home match against Suriname will be played at SeatGeek Stadium in Bridgeview, Illinois. That was the home of Major League Soccer’s Chicago Fire from 2006 through 2019 and is the current home of the National Women’s Soccer League’s Chicago Red Stars. Canada opened qualifying with a 5-1 win over Bermuda on March 25 at Orlando, Florida, then routed the Cayman Islands 11-0 at Bradenton.
