Moncton may be the smallest of the FIFA Women’s World Cup host cities, but it is mighty. The town faced two hits to its economy—in the 1860s with the collapse of the shipbuilding industry and in the 1980s with the closure of the Canadian National Railway—but Moncton stuck to its first motto, Resurgo—Latin for “I rise again”—and stayed true to its heritage as a transportation, distribution, retail, and commercial center to once again become a thriving community. The city has exciting arts and entertainment and sports scenes, putting on several major events throughout the year. Moncton will host Women’s World Cup matches on June 13, 15, 17, and 21.
