Supporting Canada Sevens Rugby
On March 11-12 2017, the HSBC Canada Rugby Sevens tournament took place in Vancouver. In the second of a four-year agreement, Grosvenor Americas proudly partnered with Canada Sevens as the title sponsor. The 2017 tournament set a Canadian record for the largest ever rugby crowd in Canada with an attendance of 38,058 each day – a total of 76,116 for the weekend.
"The words that come to mind are rewarding, gratifying and exciting," said Canada Sevens CEO, Bill Cooper during the event. "We expected some of this success, but some of the harder-to-define things are exceeding expectations; the atmosphere and warmth of welcome, the proportion of people in costume, and fans cheering for every team. That's the spirit that rugby represents. It's such a unifying sport."
