2019 HSBC Canada Sevens
Join sell out crowds in Vancouver as the winter wonderland turns on the heat for the Rugby Sevens
HSBC Canada Sevens is the rising star in the HSBC Rugby Sevens Series calendar and for good reason. Vancouver is one of the world’s most liveable cities combining the excitement and energy of a modern city with the invigorating appeal of the great outdoors. With a landscape of soaring peaks reflected on glass skyscrapers and stunning views of temperate rainforest it sparkles with sophistication and energy, yet is relaxed and laid-back. Explore diverse neighbourhoods, decadent dining, and multicultural attractions. Just 2 hours north by road lies Whistler-Blackcomb Resort, offering a unique mountain escape with a vibrant village, epic skiing and snowboarding, and much more. While most visitors come to Vancouver to visit the city, ski or explore the great-outdoors, there is an even better excuse to travel to Vancouver and that’s Rugby Sevens. The sport of Rugby Sevens is gaining traction world-wide and is one of the most dynamic and entertaining events you can watch with incredible fan engagement and energy. Rugby Sevens was included in the Rio Olympics for the first time in 2016, giving the sport global distribution, resulting in record-breaking attendances across the HSBC Rugby Sevens Series.
Part of the popularity is the travel opportunities available to fans. Combining travel to new destinations and non-stop entertainment at one of the world’s best spectator sports and you have an unstoppable combination. Vancouver is a vibrant, multi-cultural city where the urban metropolis blends into nature with stunning ocean-side beaches, parks and neighbouring wilderness areas. After traditional fan-favourite, the Hong Kong Sevens, HSBC Canada Sevens is catching up with sell-out crowds, festival-like atmosphere, costumes and fun for all. The HSBC Canada Sevens needs to be your next Sevens destination and we can help you get there.

Your Host City, Vancouver:
Your host city for the Canada Sevens is full of natural charm with an awe inspiring backdrop of mountains, forests and seas. Enjoy an amazing culinary scene from Chinese restaurants to authentic Japanese pubs and local fresh-caught seafood and juicy wild salmon. Venture out from Downtown to iconic Stanley Park where nature meets the city. Vancouver’s diverse neighbourhoods are well worth exploring for indie bars, restaurants in Gastown and heritage beachfront areas with a vibrant craft-beer scene. Outside the city you will be taken-aback by the natural beauty and adventures to be had, only a short drive away or venture north into Canada’s wilderness regions such as the iconic Rocky Mountains and beautiful towns such as Jasper and Banff in the Alberta Province.
