The Canadian Arena Soccer Association (CASA) was back in action on March 15th, as they took on the visiting Brazilian National team in an international friendly. This marked the 2nd international friendly that Canada has hosted since CASA was founded in mid 2017.
To the delight of fans, the Canadian side welcomed a familiar face to their squad as TFC legend Dwayne De Rosario suited up and played in his first game for CASA.
Most exciting of all was the tight contest on the field, as the game was a back and forth affair, eventually going to overtime before Canada netted the eventual winner. Check out the recap video below:
Working in partnership with CASA to put on the game, Cosmos once again provided our Event Management & Game Day Operations expertise for the game. Drawing on years of experience putting on the most entertaining sporting events in the GTA, fans were treated to a show that included a pre-game performance, hot dog cannon and much more.
Additionally, Cosmos is the exclusive sponsorship firm for the Canadian Arena Soccer Association. Cosmos staff were on hand introducing the new sport to several potential sponsors, showcasing the unique partnership opportunities that arena soccer has to offer.
Canada will be back in action at the Hershey Centre on May 6th as they welcome the US National Team. The event will feature a double header with the Arena Premier League Championship game taking place followed by the international friendly. Tickets are available online at ticketmaster.ca.
