In U SPORTS women’s soccer, Ottawa will host the national event for the first time in program history, having previously captured their only Gladys Bean Memorial Trophy in 1996.
“The University of Ottawa is very excited to have been chosen as host for the 2018 U SPORTS Women’s Soccer Championship,” said uOttawa’s director of Sports Services Sue Hylland. “This will mark the first time that the University of Ottawa has hosted the women’s soccer championship in the program’s storied 23-year history and we are delighted to provide this once-in-a-lifetime experience for our student-athletes to host a national championship on their home turf. We also feel this will contribute significantly to the student experience for all 43,000 students on our campus and we welcome the opportunity to host some of the best women’s soccer players in Canada.”
