Vancouver Whitecaps FC2's (F) Caleb Clarke and (D) Jackson Farmer have been called up to Canada's 20-man roster for CONCACAF Olympic qualifying. The tournament, which includes eight CONCACAF nations, is scheduled to start on October 1st at Sporting Park in Kansas City, MO. Also selected to the Canadian team is former Whitecap Ben Fisk, who now plays for RC Deportivo La Coruňa in Spain.
The CONCACAF Olympic qualifying championship consists of two groups of four teams, with the top two teams automatically qualifying for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The third place team can advance to the Olympic soccer tournament, but would have to so by beating COMNEBOL's Colombia, who finished second in South America's Youth Football Championship.
