If you’re unfamiliar, the HSBC World Rugby Sevens is an annual tournament that takes place in cities across the globe. Alongside Vancouver, Edmonton joins Singapore, Hong Kong, Dubai and Cape Town as the 2021 host cities. Vancouver and Edmonton are actually on back-to-back weekends, so it will be interesting to see how many superfans come over to check it out.

The games will last a weekend (Saturday and Sunday) and will take place at the Commonwealth Stadium. Thanks to Alberta’s reopening plan, the organizers will be able to have some 31,000 fans in attendance.
