Spain will kick off the 2022 Women’s World Cup with an evening clash against Canada at the Olympic Stadium in Terrassa.

The co-hosts will push back on July 1 before matches in Amsterdam, Netherlands – co-hosting the tournament – start on July 2, with New Zealand playing China.

Both venues will host pool matches, cross-overs, classification matches and quarter-finals. Terrassa, which hosted the Olympic hockey tournaments in 1992, will also hold the semi-finals, the third-place match and the final.

Tickets for both nations’ matches went on sale on Tuesday: (for matches in Spain) (for matches in the Netherlands)
