Norconex, proud sponsor of girl soccer teams


In the wake of FIFA Women’s World Cup 2015 starting in Canada on June 6th, many young girls are anxiously waiting to see their favorite players compete for their country. Soccer (or “football” outside North America) has been the most practiced sport in Canada by kids from age 5 to 14 for over a decade now. Girls represent over 40% of these young players.

Norconex is proud to help attract and retain even more girls to play the world’s most beloved sport by sponsoring 5 girl-only teams from U10 to U14 part of the “Association de Soccer de Hull”.

We can’t predict who will be the next Christine Sinclair, but we hope an increasing number of girls will enjoy soccer and even dream to be on the national team one day.

If you’re in Canada this June (or early July), make sure you have your World Cup tickets. Matches will be played in 6 cities across the country.

Go girls!
