West Georgia’s sports-friendly watering hole will act as a celebration destination for costume-clad rugby fans from across the world while the weekend-long international tournament takes place nearby at BC Place.
Library Square is certainly a convenient location for those with tickets to the games. Located on the edge of the city’s “Stadium District,” the popular Donnelly Group sports bar is a short walk from BC Place, where all the Rugby Sevens action will unfold.
The tented 5000 square foot Fanzone, situated on the corner of Georgia and Homer streets, will boast live entertainment, interactive rugby games, a giant outdoor TV screening all the action, along with a stream of DJs.
With free admission, the Fanzone is being run in support of grassroots rugby in British Columbia with $1 from every beer sold being donated to B.C. Rugby youth programs. In addition, demos and games will get fans in the spirit to enjoy the world class rugby being played inside BC Place.
The Fanzone’s festivities will kick off on March 11 with a launch party, followed by a games day on March 12. It will wrap up with an afterparty on March 13.
