Canada Soccer’s Men’s National Team’s final crucial matchup against French Guiana in Concacaf Nations League Qualifying on 24 March at BC Place in Vancouver will be broadcast on TSN2 and RDS Info at 18:00 ET/15:00 PT.

The decisive match will be produced by MEDIAPRO and signify the first game produced for live domestic and international broadcast by the global media company which recently sealed a long-term media partnership with Canadian Soccer Business (CSB) for Canada Soccer’s National Teams. MEDIAPRO will produce the international feed for Concacaf, the governing body for soccer in North and Central America and the Caribbean, which is distributing the signal to rights holders around the world including Canada.

“Canada Soccer is pleased to have this all-important match featured on TSN and RDS so that Canadian fans can cheer from coast to coast,” said Peter Montopoli, Canada Soccer General Secretary.  “It will be exciting to have this decisive match produced by one of the largest soccer global rights holders and content producers in the world.”
 
The Canada match kicks off at 15.00 local at BC Place in Vancouver, British Columbia, with tickets available via Ticketmaster.ca or canadasoccer.com/tickets. Alongside watching the match in stadium or on television, Canadian fans can follow the match across Canada Soccer’s digital channels on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, with additional behind-the-scenes coverage throughout the week-long camp in Vancouver.
 
A win or draw will be enough for Canada to qualify for the 2019 Concacaf Gold Cup and the 2019-20 Concacaf Nations League Group A, joining already-qualified nations Costa Rica, Honduras, Mexico, Panama, Trinidad and Tobago, and USA.
 
Among the 34 qualifying nations, Canada are in third place as one of six nations with nine perfect points after three wins. Following this weekend’s matches, the Draw for 2019-20 Concacaf Nations League will take place on 27 March while the Draw for the 2019 Concacaf Gold Cup will take place on 10 April.
 

Canada Soccer’s Men’s National Team will call on the home crowd for their last match of Concacaf Nations League Qualifying. It is a match that matters, with Canada needing a win to guarantee their spot in both the 2019 Concacaf Gold Cup and 2019-20 Concacaf Nations League Group A.
 
To help get Canada over the line, coach John Herdman has called an exciting group of players for the Sunday 24 March decisive match at BC Place in Vancouver. Canada’s home crowd will have a chance to get behind the Canada team that features experienced, young and emerging stars as well as the homecoming of 2018 Canadian Player of the Year Alphonso Davies.

 
“Every game you play at home is special, but this game has the little something extra as the result could really shape the destiny for Canada,” said John Herdman, Canada Soccer’s Men’s National Team Head Coach. “For the people of British Columbia, they’ve been amazing at being there for Canada when we’ve needed them most and we need them out again on March 24th to help this team make history by qualifying for Concacaf Nations League Group A”.
 
The Canada-French Guiana match kicks off at 15.00 local at BC Place in downtown Vancouver. Fans are encouraged to be there when it matters to cheer on Canada’s soccer heroes and next generation of up-and-coming young stars. Tickets are available via Ticketmaster.ca starting as low as $20. A special ‘Me+3’ ticket offer is available for this match. By purchasing three tickets in Price Category 2, fans will receive the fourth one free. Fans can visit canadasoccer.com/tickets for complete ticket information.
 
Of the 34 nations in Concacaf Nations League Qualifying, the top-10 qualify for the 2019 Concacaf Gold Cup while the top-6 also qualify for 2019-20 Concacaf Nations League Qualifying Group A. With just the one match remaining, Canada are in third place with nine points and +14 goals difference.
 
Including Canada, six nations have reached nine points with three straight wins while nine other nations could still equal that mark with a win in the last week of the qualifying competition. French Guiana are in 12th place with six points, so they will be desperate to get a win in order to qualify for the Concacaf Gold Cup like they did two years ago.
 
Incidentally, the only previous Canada-French Guiana encounter was the Concacaf Gold Cup opener in 2017. Davies scored his first two international goals in that match at age 16, making it 3-0 on the hour mark and then 4-2 after a brief French Guiana rally. 
 
CANADA’S HEROES COMING TO BC PLACE
Canada will field their best lineup for the home international on Sunday 24 March in Vancouver. Veterans include midfielder Scott Arfield, goalkeeper Milan Borjan, centre back David Edgar, midfielder Will Johnson, and midfielder Atiba Hutchinson. Like Davies, both Johnson and Hutchinson have won Canadian Player of the Year honours.
 
Borjan, the Canadian record holder for clean sheets in UEFA competitions, was recently named the Red Star Belgrade Male Athlete of the Year for the 2018 season. Just last year, Borjan helped his club with the Serbian SuperLiga title and qualify for UEFA Champions League.
 
Also coming home from overseas in Europe, winger Junior Hoilett plays Cardiff City FC in the Premier League, fullback Samuel Adekugbe plays for Vålerenga Fotball in Norway, goalkeeper Simon Thomas plays for Kongsvinger IL in Norway, Arfield plays for Rangers FC in Scotland, and both Hutchinson and Cyle Larin play for Beşiktaş JK in Turkey.
 
Davies, who now plays for FC Bayern Munich in Germany, returns to BC Place where he spent the last four years in the Vancouver Whitecaps organisation. Current Vancouver players called into the Canadian team for the March match are goalkeeper Maxime Crépeau, centre backs Derek Cornelius and Doneil Henry, and midfielder Russell Teibert.
 
Other big stars in the Canadian squad are forward Lucas Cavallini of Puebla FC in Mexico, Mark-Anthony Kaye of Los Angeles FC, Samuel Piette of Impact de Montréal, and 2018 George Gross Memorial Award winner Jonathan Osorio of Toronto FC.
 
“Having got to know this group of men, I know how important it is for them to play at home so that our heroes in red shirts are visible to our young fans, it’s a big part of why they do what they do,” said Herdman. “For the players coming back into Canada, there is always that extra emotion playing on home soil, these men have worked to earn the right to sing the national anthem with their fellow Canadians and to them there’s no better feeling, it’s just special and even more so when the game they’re about to play has real meaning and they hear and feel that Canadian support.”
 
YOUNGSTERS ON THE RISE
Davies is one of seven call ups aged 21 or younger, all returning from promising 2018 seasons on the international stage. Davies, 18, is joined by teenagers Jonathan David of KAA Gent in Belgium, Liam Millar of Kilmarnock FC in Scotland, and Ballou Tabla of Albacete Balompié in Spain. Other youngsters are Zachary Brault-Guillard of Impact de Montréal, Derek Cornelius of Vancouver, and Marcus Godinho of Heart of Midlothian in Scotland.
 
Davies, Brault-Guillard, Cornelius, Millar, and Tabla have all joined new teams since last year, with Davies notably joining German Bundesliga giants FC Bayern while 2018 Canadian Youth International of the Year Cornelius signed with Vancouver. Brault-Guillard is out on loan from Olympique Lyon, Millar is out on loan from Liverpool FC, and Tabla is out on loan from FC Barcelona.
 
CANADA SOCCER MEN’S NATIONAL TEAM
Canada posted a perfect international record with four wins and four clean sheets in 2018, a first for the Men's National Team Program. Three of those wins were in Concacaf Nations League Qualifying, pushing Canada into third place in the 34-nation competition with nine points and +14 goals difference. In September, Canada set a national record with eight goals scored in a single match, an 8:0 away victory over US Virgin Islands. In October, Canada set a national record for the biggest goal difference in a home match, a 5:0 win over Dominica at BMO Field in Toronto.
 
Canada are two-time CONCACAF champions, having won the CONCACAF Championship in 1985 and the CONCACAF Gold Cup in 2000. In winning the 1985 CONCACAF Championship, Canada qualified for the 1986 FIFA World Cup Mexico™; in winning the 2000 CONCACAF Gold Cup, Canada qualified for the FIFA Confederations Cup Korea/Japan 2001.
