FIFA today unveiled the official poster for the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup.

The poster is “designed to reflect the diversity of Canada’s multicultural society and capture the essence of the great Canadian outdoors.”

FIFA Marketing Director Thierry Weil said: “The poster forms a key part of the visual identity of the FIFA Women’s World Cup Canada 2015 and perfectly captures the extraordinary diversity of the host nation. I’m sure this will help to generate even more excitement as we move towards the tournament.”

According to the Canada Soccer Association website, the “poster’s soccer ball and sun icon expresses positivity and ambition. The cascading shapes, meanwhile, evoke Canada’s breath-taking landscapes, expansive skies, towering mountains, rich green forests, vast lakes, powerful rivers and dynamic cityscapes. Together, this iconic imagery flows as the hair from a woman’s head, her proud expression exuding confidence, determination and freedom.”

For soccer fans in the United States, the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup will be FOX’s first World Cup that the network will be covering. The World Cup runs from June 6-July 5, with games held in Vancouver, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Ottawa, Montreal, and Moncton.

    Surprised Canada’s group games will be in Edmonton. Not Vancouver or Ottowa/Montreal.

    Just realized no games in Toronto.

    • Christopher Harris says:

      According to Wikipedia:

      “Halifax was also considered, but removed itself from contention in March 2012. Toronto decided not to bid, due to potential conflicts with the 2015 Pan American Games. Due to FIFA’s policy against commercial sponsorship of stadium names, Investors Group Field in Winnipeg and TD Place Stadium in Ottawa will be known by generic names during the tournament.”

  2. Joe says:

    Ottawa is scheduled to host 9 games. Tickets go on sale in September.

    who will be the announcers for FIFA Women’s world cup? i’m not opposed to gus johnson commentating on this tournament, btw. in fact, this is an opportunity for him.

  5. Cantona says:

    When I see this tournament all I see is training phase two for Gus johnson .. A reminder that all will suck with Fox in 2018
