It’s back, it’s bigger, and it’s one day only! Following the 60,000-spectator wave that began in March with the Rugby Sevens tournament, history is being made as our Canadian National Men’s team plays at BC Place for the first time on Saturday June 11th.
Challenging our men’s team is Japan, who stunned the Rugby World last year when they went 3-1 at the Rugby World Cup, including a famous victory over South Africa. Canada and Japan have a storied rivalry, and have been playing each other since 1932. With Canada currently ranking at 18th in the world, and Japan at 10th, this is your chance to cheer for the team and fill the stadium with red and white (which really, is relevant no matter which team you’re into.) The louder you cheer, the more likely they are to win – at least that’s what I’m told, so it must be true. Be loud online as well by tagging #RISEAsOne to connect with the team and other fans.
Please note this contest is now closed. Winners have been chosen and notified by email.
