EDMONTON, Ab. (May 16, 2013) – Colin Miller has been appointed as the Interim Head Coach for Canada’s upcoming Men’s International Friendly against Costa Rica at Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton on 28 May.
Miller has previously acted as Interim Head Coach for the MNT during a spell in 2003/2004 and recently took charge of the team during a January 2013 camp in USA. Canada rebounded from an opening loss to Denmark during the January camp to earn a 0:0 draw away to USA in Houston, TX.
“I’m the proudest man in Canada, once again,” said Miller. “We will be hoping to build on the positive way we finished our last camp together with a result away to USA, and also looking to build on the good work that Tony Fonseca did with the team during the recent camp in Qatar.”
Miller is also looking forward to leading Canada out in Edmonton, his new hometown.
“It’s an exciting game for me as it’s in my home city,” said Miller. “During my playing years fans in Edmonton offered tremendous support to the Canada team and we hope they will be out in full force to turn it into ‘Fortress Commonwealth’ on match day.”
Fans can purchase tickets to 28 May friendly (18.00 local kick-off) online at ticketmaster.ca or by phone at 1-855-985-5000 or in person at all Ticketmaster outlets.

In addition, a special Family Pack of four tickets in the light blue section will be accessible for $98.
