The stars of women's soccer will take to the field at the FIFA Women's World Cup Canada 2015™ in just over one month's time, but before that the spotlight will be on young Canadian female players who have an opportunity to "live their goals" through a series of FIFA #LiveYourGoals Festivals.
The festivals, which are part of the legacy programme for Canada 2015, are taking place all across Canada.
Ottawa hosted the first of the seven festivals this past weekend with the help of the OSA's Female Mentorship Program and OSA Player Development Department.
"Live Your Goals is FIFA's dedicated development campaign aimed at inspiring girls and young women to get involved in soccer and stay in the game," said Mayi Cruz-Blanco, FIFA Senior Women's Football Development Manager.
"In Canada, we hope that all the excitement generated through the FIFA Women's World Cup™ will contribute to grassroots development for the country's most popular participation sport."
