Canada expected to host 2015 Women’s World Cup

Zimbabwe withdraws only competing bid

Canada’s only competitor in the bid for the Women’s World Cup of soccer in 2015 has dropped out. With Zimbabwe gone, it’s likely Canada will host the games. Canada’s bid must still be approved by FIFA. If successful, Canada would also hold an under-20 test event in 2014. This year’s Women’s World Cup takes place in Germany starting June 26.
