Sask to face New Brunswick in Game 1

Ottawa (May 11, 2017) - The quest for the 2017 Football Canada Cup begins on Saturday July 8 at Acadia University's Raymond Field in Wolfville, Nova Scotia. The weeklong tournament features the top under-18 tackle football players from British Columbia to Nova Scotia.

The event returns to Wolfville after Acadia hosted the first edition of the tournament's current under-18 format in 2010. This summer also marks the return of British Columbia. Canada's most pacific province placed third in both Wolfville (2010) and Lethbridge (2011). Despite their past success, BC will face a tough test on opening day in two-time defending champion, Quebec.

Following semi-final matchups on Tuesday July 11 at 4 and 7 p.m., the tournament's two undefeated teams will play for gold under the Friday night lights on July 14 at 7 p.m. local time.
