OTTAWA - Canada's opening World Cup qualifying game will be held

in Kingston, Ont., on June 13, the Canadian Soccer Association

announced Friday.

The Canadian men, currently ranked 87th in the world, will take

on No. 174 Belize in the first leg of a home-and-away qualifying tie

in the CONCACAF region, which covers North and Central America and

the Caribbean.

The return leg will be played on June 20 in Belize.

The winner of the tie will advance to one of three four-team

groups in the semifinal round of qualifying in the region. The top

two countries from each of those groups will advance to a final

round of qualifying after round-robin play.

CONCACAF has three automatic berths in the 2006 World Cup in

Germany. A fourth country will take on an Asian team in a playoff

for another World Cup berth.

The Canada-Belize game will take place in Richardson Stadium at

Queen's University. The venue, which seats 10,000, was used by the

Canadian women's team in September for an exhibition game against

Australia prior to the World Cup.
