National Organising Committee executive committee
With just two days left before the first teams take the pitch, the FIFA U-20 World Cup Canada 2007 announced a new milestone today at the Organising Committee press conference. Ticket sales are now promising more than 950,000 spectators for the 52-match tournament.

Colin Linford, Chairman of the National Organising Committee, and Jack Warner, Chairman of the FIFA U-20 World Cup Canada 2007, were among those present at the press conference in downtown Toronto.

Also present was Bob Waite, senior vice president, stakeholder relations and brand for Canada Post. Waite had Linford and Warner unveil Canada Post’s newest domestic stamp highlighting the FIFA U-20 World Cup.

'National stamps are fantastic because they become not just a piece of history, but a piece of the national consciousness,' said Warner. 'As the chairman of the Organising Committee for the FIFA U-20 World Cup, I am delighted that Canada Post has honoured the tournament in this way.'

The FIFA U-20 World Cup Canada 2007 runs 30 June to 22 July in six cities across Canada: Victoria, Burnaby, Edmonton, Toronto, Ottawa and Montr�al. The tournament will feature the best U-20 players in the world, including Canada�s six ambassadors on the road to the FIFA U-20 World Cup, goalkeeper Asmir Begovic, defender David Edgar, midfielders Jonathan Beaulieu-Bourgault, Will Johnson, and Jaime Peters, and forward Andrew Lombardo. Past greats include Diego Maradona, Thierry Henry, Craig Forrest, Ronaldinho, Cesc Fabregas, and Lionel Messi.
