Canada will open their 2022-23 Concacaf Nations League A schedule at BC Place this June in Vancouver, British Columbia. The home match will be Canada’s opening fixture of Concacaf Nations League A against Curaçao on Thursday 9 June. Canada then play away in their second Concacaf Nations League A match against Honduras in San Pedro Sula on Monday 13 June.

This will mark Canada’s first home match since qualifying for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ after finishing first overall in the Concacaf Final Round.

This marks the second edition of Concacaf Nations League, with Canada having finished second in their group in the inaugural 2019-20 edition with a 3-0-1 record. Canada posted back-to-back wins against Cuba in September 2019 and then a home win and away loss against USA in October and November 2019. The 2:0 win against USA at BMO Field was Canada’s first against their Concacaf neighbours in 34 years. USA went on to win the inaugural competition with a 3:2 a.e.t win over Mexico on 6 June 2021.

Beyond the first two group matches in Concacaf Nations League A in June 2022, Canada will face Curaçao away on 25 March 2023 and then Honduras back home on 28 March 2023. Locations and details for those two Concacaf Nations League matches will be announced in the coming year.
