Journey to Surrey: finalists for the 2017 Jubilee Trophy

Posted on 23 September 2017 in ↳ Jubilee Trophy

On the journey to Surrey, 67 women's teams have competed for a spot at the 2017 Toyota National Championships. The Jubilee Trophy finals will be played 4-9 October, with matches to be played at Newton Athletic Fields in British Columbia.

The nine women's teams competing in the Jubilee Trophy finals have been divided into three groups of three teams. Each team will play four matches in six days: two matches in the initial group phase and then two more in the classification phase. From the group phase, the three group winners will advance to the first classification group (to compete for first to third place), the three runners up will advance to the second classification group (fourth to sixth place), and the three third-place teams will advance to the third classification group (seventh to ninth place).

Eight of the nine teams have reached the Toyota National Championships in previous years, with notably Surrey United SC, Edmonton Victoria SC, and Halifax Dunbrack SC all previous national winners. Only CS Mont-Royal Outremont, who eliminated the 2016 national champions from Beauport in the 2017 Québec playoffs, are new to the Jubilee Trophy finals.

Group A: Saskatoon SK Impact FC, CS Mont-Royal Outremont, Holy Cross SC
Group B: Surrey United SC, Fredericton Picaroons Reds, Halifax Dunbrack SC
Group C: North Shore GSC, Edmonton Victoria SC, Scarborough GS United
