Surrey, B.C. – The 2018 Canada Cup International Softball Championship – taking place July 13-22 in Surrey, BC - has received $50,000 in funding from the Government of Canada through the Sport Canada Hosting Program.
 
The funding is made available to assist sport organizations in hosting international sporting events, and the Program contributes to excellence in sport but also enhances the international profile of sport organizations, like Canada Cup.
 
“The Government of Canada is proud to support the 2018 Canada Cup International Softball Championship, which offers women athletes the opportunity to push past their limits and realize their full potential,” said the Honourable Kirsty Duncan, Minister of Science and Minister of Sport and Persons with Disabilities. “The shared sense of accomplishment brings a lot to the Canadian sport system, as the benefits of hosting events like this go far beyond the duration of the championship.”
 
“This funding from Sport Canada allows Canadian players to compete against the world’s best in the 2018 Canada Cup International Softball Championship,” says Canada Cup Chairman Greg Timm. “On behalf of Canada Cup, I would like to thank Sport Canada for the support once more.”
 
The 2018 Canada Cup is the premiere women’s softball event of the season and will showcase the best female softball players from Canada and the world in a multi-day tournament. Hosted  by Softball City in Surrey, the tournament will include some of the world’s top international teams and national and international club teams.
