Women's Football Championship Coming In 2013

Football fever is coming to Saint John in 2013 -- the city will be hosting the Women's World Championship by the International Federation of American Football.

12 out of 16 games will be played here and will feature 8 teams from around the world, including Canada.

Ashlee Clements played in the first championship series held in Sweden in 2010.  She tells CHSJ News it's a huge accomplishment for the city and for the women's football league here.  She says it will be fantastic for local players who make the team to be able to play at home.
Orgaznizers are trying to secure the Canada Games Stadium for the event, which will take place from August 2nd to the 10th in 2013.
