TORONTO, Canada—2021 is looking to be a be bit better on at least one front—International Soccer.

Coming less than a week after Canada Soccer announced that the CANWNT will be participating in the 2021 SheBelieves Cup this February, the men’s team dropped some news of their own:

It’s now confirmed that the 2021 Olympic Qualifiers will go down in Guadalajara, Mexico, from Mar. 18-30, 2021. It will be a bubble tournament featuring eight Men’s U-23 National sides.

Those eight teams are: Mexico, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Honduras, Canada, El Salvador and Haiti. They will be split into 2 groups, and games will be split across two venues: the Jalisco and Akron Stadiums in Mexico.

We can only speculate as to what roster Canada will take down south, but we do at least know how we can watch it — Fox Sports and TUDN (Mexico/USA) and One Soccer (Canada).

The men’s national team was last in action one year ago: Jan. 15, 2020 vs. Iceland.

Keep it locked on WTR as more info drops.
