Canadian men to face Cayman Islands in Florida in World Cup qualifying match
Soccer match moved to IMG Academy in Bradenton due to quarantine rules
Canada's World Cup qualifying game scheduled for March 28 in the Cayman Islands will now be played in Bradenton, Fla.
The match will be played at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, where the Canadian team held a camp in January.
The Cayman Islands faces its own difficulties in hosting a game, given it currently requires visitors to quarantine for 14 days upon entry. That quarantine period is being reduced to 10 as of March 22, providing visitors have been vaccinated.
The Canadian men are currently ranked 73rd in the world compared to No. 169 for Bermuda and No. 193 for the Cayman Islands.
Canada is 5-0-4 all-time against Bermuda and has won the last three meetings, outscoring the Bermudians 9-2.
