TORONTO (AP) - The Canadian Soccer Association has delivered its official bid book for the 2015 Women’s World Cup, dropping off the documents at FIFA's headquarters in Zurich.

Canada was runner-up to Germany in the race to host this summer women’s championship. This time Canada is up against Zimbabwe.

FIFA's executive committee will decide on the successful bidder at a vote at its March 2-3 meeting.

The winner will also host to the 2014 U-20 Women’s World Cup, which will serve as a test event.
