The tournament kicks off at the Pacific Coliseum on January 10 at 6:30 pm local time with Canada taking on Mexico. Canada will then play Cuba on Saturday, and close the tournament, challenging Puerto Rico at 4 pm on January 12.

The winner of the tournament will join Brazil, Italy, Poland, Russia, Argentina, Japan and the USA at the 2020 Tokyo Games from July 25 to August 9.

The Canadian women will also be battling in their own NORCECA Tokyo Qualification Tournament, taking place in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. The women’s team will be up against Mexico, Puerto Rico, and the Dominican Republic over the same dates as the men’s tournament.
