Since the first FIFA Women’s World Cup in 1991, interest in playing and watching women’s soccer has only increased. Around the world, more girls than ever before are playing the beautiful game that not only provides obvious health benefits but also helps boost girls’ confidence and self-esteem at the time in their lives when they need it most.

Norconex is proud to renew its sponsorship of women’s soccer teams in the Association de Soccer de Hull (Gatineau, Quebec, Canada) for the 2016 season. In addition to renewing its support for five local teams with players between 10 and 16 years of age, Norconex now sponsors two competitive women’s teams (U12 and U15).

At the upcoming women’s soccer tournament in this year’s Summer Olympics, girls will be able to cheer for their soccer idols once again, and Norconex will be cheering along with them.

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!
