Live Your Goals
FIFA Live Your Goals Festivals, in conjunction with the Canadian Soccer Association and its provincial member associations, successfully held festivals in each of the four host cities for the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup Canada 2014. Montreal, Quebec was the first on 12 July followed by Moncton, New Brunswick 19 July, Edmonton, Alberta on 27 July and finally Toronto, Ontario on 1 August.
by the Provincial Soccer Technical Directors and Women’s Committees, responsible for the mentorship and promotion of female leaders in soccer.
Supported by parents in the stands and with beautiful weather throughout all events, these young girls experienced an afternoon that they will remember for a long time. Female players of the Women’s National Team, represented by Josée Bélanger, Rhian Wilkinson, Brittany Baxter and Melanie Booth, as well as U-20 players Vanessa Gregoire, Amandine Pierre-Louis and Valerie Sanderson, were excellent role models for these young girls to be inspired to Live Their Goals through soccer.
In 2015 it is expected that more Live your Goals Festivals will take place in other host cities: Ottawa, Ontario (May 3rd); Winnipeg, Manitoba (May 18th); and Vancouver, British Columbia (May 23rd).
