Upcoming Event: Vancouver Sevens Rugby, February 23 – 25, 2024

February 5, 2024 |

One epic weekend, over 60 thousand fans, 64 matches, 24 teams, and a remarkable amount of fanfare…

It’s Canada Rugby Sevens time again in Vancouver!

The event is part of the World Rugby Sevens series, with 8 tournaments held around the world throughout the year. For the uninitiated, sevens rugby is a fast-paced, shorter version of traditional rugby with only seven players per side. The Vancouver edition takes place February 23 through 25 at B.C. Place, and features 24 of the world’s top men’s and women’s teams.

The play on the field is action packed, but almost as entertaining are the ‘fancy dress’ costumes. Basically, think “Halloween in February” and you’re there. From Canadian lumberjacks and full-size Lego men to squirrels, beavers, and cowboys riding dinosaurs, Sevens fans go all out over this three-day event and this year’s costumes are sure to be wackier than ever.

Make sure to get your tickets soon. This popular event breaks attendance records each year. If you’re coming to Vancouver to catch the action, don’t forget to book a stay with us at The Burrard. We’re only a 15-minute walk from the stadium, and steps away from some of the city’s best eateries and bars. We can’t wait to see your costume!
