Sooke player escort chosen for 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup

Xanthe Evans of Sooke will escort a FIFA athlete hand in hand to the field on the Women's World Cup Canada's final match.

Lower Island Soccer Association is pleased to announce it will be participating as the Player Escort Team at the FIFA Women’s World Cup Canada 2015 Final Match in Vancouver on July 5, 2015.

From Sooke, the winning Player Escort is Xanthe Evans, who will be joining others from all 10 Lower Island soccer clubs.

Player escorts will participate in the opening ceremony at BC Place on July 5, 2015 by walking out hand-in-hand with the starting line-up of the competing nations.

They will enjoy the match with other youth programme participants and will be part of a once in a lifetime opportunity.

“We are excited to give 22 Lower Island Soccer Association players the dream of a lifetime,” said Tim Satterford LISA President.  “We pride ourselves on providing the highest quality soccer experience in our community and this definitely meets the criteria.”

From approximately 1,400 eligible female players aged six to 10 years old, 22 lucky players were selected and will now receive their FIFA training this weekend to prepare them for their big match.

BC Place has hosted over 27 million people right in the heart of Vancouver’s downtown entertainment district, with high profile events including the ceremonies of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.
