This August something a little bit different is happening in Surrey that is sure to get the city buzzing. Starting August 25, Softball City is hosting the Qualification Event for the Games of the XXXII Olympiad Tokyo 2020! There will be a total of 12 teams participating in the event, fighting for two coveted spots in the 2020 Olympic Games. You don’t want to miss this, as world-class athletes and some of the best teams in the world will be showcased right in our own backyard.
In 2018, Team Canada was ranked third in the world, just below the USA and Japan. They will go head to head with other highly ranked teams such as Peru and Mexico, as well as many others from South America. Team USA will not be competing as they already secured their spot in the 2020 Games by reigning victorious at the WBSC Women’s Softball World Championship 2018 in Chiba, Japan.
Tickets are available to purchase online, and day passes can be bought at the gate during the event. Surrey welcomes all visitors who will be supporting their respective countries and cheering for their favourite teams at this exciting and memorable event!
So, grab some peanuts and crackerjacks and plan your ball-watching by checking out the schedule.
