Saskatchewan will be the host of the 2014 Football Canada Cup (FCC) in July.
The event will be held at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon from July 6 to 12. The game returns to the province after last being held in 2009.
The FCC is the premier pre-university football tournament in Canada, which annually showcases the top under-18 football players from across the country.
Games will be held on July 6, July 9 and July 12 at Griffiths Stadium.
“Saskatchewan is excited to host the Canada Cup for a second time in the province’s history and first under the single under-18 division format,” said Kim Wudrick, Football Saskatchewan president in a release. “Hosting the Canada Cup is a great way to celebrate our passion and commitment to the game.”
An alumnus of the game includes Ben Heenan, Israel Idonije, Kirby Fabien, Andy Fantuz, Dan McCullough, Jason Pottinger and Matt Walter.
In 2010, Saskatchewan won the Cup in Nova Scotia, but has finished fourth in 2012 and 2013.
