The match against the Italians will provide Canadian head coach, Even Pellerud, with yet another opportunity to test his side against quality opposition ahead of the team’s Women’s World Cup qualifying this coming November.



“When I coached Norway, I always looked forward to intense, tough games against Italy,” said Pellerud. “Since that time I have been seeking opportunities to play this team and that has finally been achieved thanks to a great idea and contribution from two groups, Universal Youth Foundation and the Azzurri Soccer club in Toronto.”

About Universal Youth Foundation

The Universal Youth Foundation is a Canadian, nationally registered Charity that is committed to providing educational assistance to children and youth in need throughout the developing world by funding schools and teachers. Our goal is to provide hope to these children and youth through access to an education.



In 2005, our inaugural year, the Universal Youth Foundation has raised $265,000 in support of our goals and approved two projects. One initiative will result in permanently established educational facilities in Tanzania; the other consists of temporary emergency school accommodations in Pakistan. The Tanzania project involves the building of an educational wing for the Amani Children’s Home, a centre for AIDS orphans and street children located in Moshi, Tanzania.



In addition, we made a seven year commitment to support the complete primary school education for 75 of Amani’s children. The Pakistan initiative will provide emergency funding to establish a temporary tent school for 120 children displaced by the recent earthquake. The Foundation has a dedicated team of experienced individuals with backgrounds in education, law, international development, media, communications, security, business, politics and youth who have come together to provide hope through education.
