W’Hoop It Up – Canada’s Senior Women’s National Basketball Team Faces Off Against Portugal in Victoria BC

Victoria basketball fans, get ready! Team Canada will return to Victoria for W’Hoop It Up; a pre-Olympic training camp with an exhibition game against Portugal on June 26, 2024 at the Save-On Foods Memorial Centre. Tickets for the game go on sale May 24, 2024 at

We set the record, now let’s break it!

In June 2023, the team played in the Rim2Rim series against Japan in Victoria, setting the record for the largest home-game attendance with over 4,600 fans. This year the goal is to break the record again with a sell-out crowd at Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre.

Women’s Sports are finally getting the attention they deserve and basketball leads the way with recent record-shattering viewership during this year’s NCAA March Madness tournament. Peaking at 24 million viewers during the final, it became the most-viewed college basketball game (men’s or women’s) of all time.

“Hosting Portugal in Victoria next month will be an important early test for our Senior Women’s National Team as they continue building towards the Paris 2024 Olympic Games,” said Michael Bartlett, President & CEO of Basketball Canada. “On behalf of Canada Basketball and our team, I’d like to extend my gratitude and appreciation to the Province of British Columbia, Destination Greater Victoria, the City of Victoria, and Rifflandia Entertainment Company for their ongoing support and help in organizing this series. Building on the success of last summer’s Rim2Rim exhibition game against Japan, we’re anticipating a sold-out game and an unforgettable experience for both teams and all the fans in attendance.”

Tickets for the game will go on sale on May 24 at 10:00am with all bowl seats priced at $27 (plus s/c) and floor seats priced at $65 (plus s/c). Head to to purchase and come be a part of history in the making!
