Saturday tickets already sold out for Canada Sevens rugby at BC Place

Mar 4 2020, 4:32 pm

It’s rugby sevens week in Vancouver, as players representing 16 countries have arrived to town in anticipation of the fifth edition of Canada Sevens this weekend.

The tournament has been a smash hit with fans ever since its debut in 2016, and this year is no exception.

Single-day tickets have already sold out for Saturday (though a limited number of two-day weekend passes still remain), while a Canada Sevens spokesperson tells Daily Hive 80% of Sunday tickets are gone as well.

Capacity is being capped at about 40,000 each day, which should make for a raucous atmosphere — as the lower bowl should be full. Tournament organizers tell Daily Hive they are expecting a weekend attendance “well over 70,000” for the fourth year in a row. The Canada Sevens attendance record is 77,097, set in 2018.

Schedule

Sevens is an all-day affair. The first match on Saturday kicks off at 9 am, and the day doesn’t end until 6:55 pm, when the final match of the day concludes. A total of 45 matches will be played over the weekend, with the Cup Final taking place at 6:28 pm on Sunday.
