Supporting Canada Sevens Rugby
On March 12-13 2016, the inaugural HSBC Canada Rugby Sevens tournament took place in Vancouver. Grosvenor Americas was the Signature Partner and title sponsor of the tournament’s Club seating section. Four 18×11 meter HD screens hung from the main video board, streaming a Vancouver-focused ‘Living cities’ video and a series of ‘Canadian Moments in Rugby, brought to you by Grosvenor,’ which played several times over the weekend.
The tournament had a positive impact on the local economy with $17.8 million being spent, and has elevated Rugby’s profile in Canada. Vancouver once again proved itself a vibrant sporting city, much like it did during the 2010 Olympics.
Grosvenor Americas’ partnership with the Sevens continues through 2017.
