FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup Canada 2014 Opening Ceremony

August 7, 2014

With the theme of “We Welcome You to Canada”, PRP was pleased to produce the Opening Ceremony of the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup Canada 2014 in Toronto, Ontario. A truly patriotic celebration, the Ceremony was a blend of pageantry and youthful energy. Over 130 members of Canada’s musical ambassador’s the Burlington Marching Band kicked off the ceremony followed by a choral performance from Innovative Arts of “Bienvenue au Canada”, an original song created for the ceremony. In a stunning visual display, with the CN Tower in the background, massive maple leaf-inspired set pieces rose from behind the audience as giant fabric Tifos were passed over the heads of excited spectators, sending a greeting of welcome to 16 nations gathered in Toronto. Along with 24 members of the Royal Canadian Mounted police, the ceremony set the stage for the first match between Canada and Ghana. Played in six cities across the nation, this international football tournament includes 16 teams from around the world. Having produced the Official Draw for the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup in March of 2014 and with several more projects upcoming, PRP is proud to be working with FIFA and the National Organizing Committee of the FIFA Women’s World Cup Canada 2015. PRP would like to thank the NOC team, cast, crew and the Toronto Venue Team for all of their assistance.
