Today League1 Canada revealed the host city and stadium for the 2024 edition of the Women’s Inter-Provincial Championship.

Hamilton, Ontario’s Tim Hortons Field – home of the Canadian Premier League’s Forge FC – will welcome the women’s champions of all four Division 3 leagues in the country on August 9-11, 2024.

Speaking via press release, League1 Canada Interim General Manager John Gibson said that the event will be a major highlight to the women’s soccer calendar in Canada.

“With increasing eyes on, and opportunity in, the sport, we are planning for the best championship weekend yet to showcase the strength of the women’s game in Canada today, as well as its huge potential for growth,” he adds.

League1 Canada Week 7 – Women’s Review

With the inclusion of League1 Alberta this year – having officially joined the League1 Canada alliance in 2024 – this year’s tournament will be the first not automatically grant the hosts a berth, thus Hamilton United will not be taking to the pitch in this year’s IPC.

Both the draw date and tournament schedule were also confirmed today alongside the tournament’s hosts. League1 Canada revealed that a draw to determine the IPC semi-final match-ups will take place later this month while the tournament schedule is as follows:

SF1- AUG 9 / 5:30pm ET

SF2- AUG 9 / 8:30pm ET

3rd Place- AUG 11 / 12pm ET

Championship Final- AUG 11 / 3pm ET

Broadcast details are to be revealed later this month, however it is expected that the matches will air on the OneSoccer platform as they have in previous years.

The Inter-Provincial Championship, or IPC, has proven to be a major success in recent years as League1 Canada seeks to elevate the stature of the women’s game ahead of next year’s launch of the Northern Super League.

2024 will mark the third iteration of the IPC with Blainville, QC and Surrey, BC hosting in 2022 and 2023 respectively. The inaugural tournament saw hosts AS Blainville taken down L1QC’s AS Laval three-nil in the final to claim the title. Subsequently, L1BC’s 2023 champions, the Whitecaps Girls Elite squad, overcame a strong PEF QuĂ©bec side 5-nil last year at Vancouver FC’s Willoughby Community Park.

Individual match tickets for the 2024 IPS are now on sale starting at $20. Fans can also purchase a Weekend Ticket Pack starting at $35. Each Weekend Ticket Pack also grants the ticket holder access to the inaugural League1 Ontario Women’s League2 Division Final, which will be played at Tim Hortons Field on the Saturday of the tournament at 1:00PM EST.
