Canada to host 2015 WWC

If it's on the BBC it's got to be true.

Zimbabwe has dropped its bid to host the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup.

The country had raised eyebrows in the sporting world last moth when it announced that it would bid to host the tournament.

At that time Zimbabwean officials had acknowledged that their infrastructure was the barest minimum to stage the event.

Its decision to withdraw means that Canada are the only candidate to host the event.

Fifa will meet this week to decide the hosts of five other age-group tournaments.

Hopefully Winnipeg will get some games. Or I'll be living elsewhere in the country by then.
