A sport which likely dates back to the 2nd or 3rd centuries B.C. in China will be celebrated in grand fashion when Canada hosts the 16th edition of FIFA U-20 World Cup 2007. A domestic rate stamp will be issued on June 26 to mark the largest single-sport sporting event in Canadian history.
"It is expected that the 24 nations participating will be viewed by over 600,000 spectators" said Anthony Wilson-Smith, Vice president, Communications at Canada Post "and a stamp showcasing the sport is only fitting." The 52 games across six cities - Victoria, Burnaby, Edmonton, Ottawa, Toronto and Montreal - will take place from June 30 to July 22.
