2021 Canada Sevens rugby tickets go on !
One of Vancouver’s most popular sporting events is scheduled to make a return this fall. Tickets for Canada Sevens Vancouver go on sale next week, in advance of the highly anticipated return of next month’s tournament. Rugby Canada says that it’s working to receive final approval to host the Canada Sevens rugby tournament at BC Place this September.
Rugby sevens returns to BC Place September 18-19, with tickets going on sale to the general public on August 12 at 10 am PT. Tournament subscription holders will have a 48-hour pre-sale opportunity starting August 10.
Ticket pricing and attending teams will be released within the next week prior to tickets going on-sale, Rugby Canada says.
Ticket inventory will be quite limited, unless and until the province moves into Stage 4 of the Provincial Restart Plan before the tournament opens. Until then, tournament organizers are planning to operate at 50% capacity in the lower bowl and suite sections of BC Place.
BC could move into Stage 4 by September 7, though rising case counts driven by the Delta variant could change that. The province reported 342 cases of COVID-19 on Wednesday, though only 35% of those cases came from the Lower Mainland. Additional details such as tournament logistics, team invitations, and stadium capacity are being finalized and are expected to be shared publicly in early August. Public ticket sales are also expected to begin around that same time.
