ABOUT HSBC CANADA SEVENS
HSBC Canada Sevens are two-day Rugby Sevens tournaments featuring the world’s top men’s sevens teams. In 2021, HSBC Canada Sevens will be the first and second stops in a 6-stop world tour as part of the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series. The first event will be hosted at BC Place in Vancouver, BC on September 18-19 with the second following on September 25-26 at Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton.
Sevens rugby, a fast-paced and shorter version of traditional rugby with only seven players per side, has built a huge international audience through the success of the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series, which attracts large audiences in markets around the world.
