Join the City of Campbell River (the City) for a watch party on Thursday, July 20, 2023, to view the action live as Canada kicks off its FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia & New Zealand 2023™ quest with a match against Nigeria. This free event starts at 7 p.m. in the library courtyard (located between the Campbell River branch of the Vancouver Island Regional Library and Tidemark Theatre) on Shoppers Row in downtown Campbell River.
The game will be projected on a large screen live from Melbourne, Australia. Special guests from the local soccer community will be on hand to break down the action at half-time, including Carihi Secondary School grad and Campbell River Youth Soccer Association alumni Gillianne Stewardson, who currently plays for Harbourside FC of Nanaimo in the semi-professional League 1 BC, as well as longtime Carihi girls’ soccer team coach John Jepson. There will be games and giveaways at half-time and when the game concludes, and a local ice cream vendor will be on site.
The watch party is part of a busy schedule of free downtown events by the City and community partners this summer.
