The FIFA/Coca-Cola World Rankings looks at each country’s international results from the last four years. The ranking takes into account the result, the importance of the match, the strength of the opponent, the regional strength, the time period, and the number of matches per year.



Canada’s women’s national team, whose title sponsor is Winners and whose presenting sponsor is Teck Cominco, has participated in each of the past four FIFA Women’s World Cups, finishing fourth at USA 2003 and ninth at China 2007. The women’s program has also shown success at the youth levels, qualifying for every FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup (2002, 2004, 2006, 2008) and FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup (2008) this decade.
