Twelve countries will be participating in the men’s tournament, including:
- South Africa
- Great Britain
- Hong Kong
New this year is a women’s “fast four” tournament, with Canada, USA, Great Britain, and France competing.
A number of new safety procedures will be in place. Proof of vaccination will be required to enter the stadium, and fans will need to wear masks except while eating or drinking at their assigned seat.
Fans are being encouraged to arrive early due to the new COVID screening procedures, and also to take note of BC Place’s new bag policy, which limits the size of bag you can bring into the stadium.
General admission seating is not in place this year, as assigned seating is spread out through the lower bowl of BC Place. Attendance is limited to 50% capacity of the lower bowl, and the roof will be open if weather allows.
In-and-out privileges last until 3 pm on both days, with proof of vaccination required for re-entry.
