“This is simply an excellent opportunity for the national team and its players,” said national head coach Stephen Hart. “Playing at home is always special and I am certain both the players and Canadian fans will welcome this announcement.”



Canada will play back-to-back home matches on FIFA international dates in early September. On 4 September (17.30 kickoff), Canada faces Peru at BMO Field in Toronto (Ticketmaster / 416.872.5000). The Canadian team then flies to Montréal to face Honduras on 7 September (19.30 kickoff).



Canada last faced Honduras at the 2009 CONCACAF Gold Cup in the quarter final stage. Honduras won 1:0 on a penalty kick goal. In 2010, Honduras was one of three CONCACAF nations that participated in the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™.



Honduras is Canada’s second 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™ opponent this year. In a trip to South America in late May, Canada lost to eventual quarter-final participant Argentina on 24 May. On that same trip, Canada also drew 1:1 with Venezuela on 30 May.



With South Africa now complete, the world turns its attention to the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™. The Canada-Honduras match is part of Hart’s early preparations in advance of the next FIFA World Cup™ Qualifiers, which are expected to begin in 2012. In between, Hart and the Canadian squad will also have the 2011 CONCACAF Gold Cup (schedule also yet to be announced).
