Rugby 7’s is a faster, more dynamic version of regular Rugby, using only 7 players instead of the usual 15. Less players means more room to run, tougher hits, tighter scrums, and explosive power. It will all be on display as some of the premiere teams from around the world will attend this tournament.
The caliber of player we can expect to see at Swangard Stadium in Burnaby will be amongst the greatest in the world, Olympic and National team players. Teams showing up to represent their countries are confirmed from Europe, Asia, Africa, South Pacific, Caribbean, South America, Canada & the U.S. It’s truly an international opportunity not often seen here in Burnaby.
The week long event will feature, in addition to the men’s elite tourney, both a women’s and youth tournament, as well as club team participation. Expect to be surprised at the level of talent already exhibited by these youngsters.
WINGS will play a big part in hosting the party, with events and specials at all locations, team photo ops, meet & greets, check back often to keep track of all the happenings for this epic event and to join in the celebrations at WINGS.
