Calling all rugby fans of Victoria!

If you’re looking for the thrill of experiencing live, in-person rugby, you’re in luck; Canada’s Men’s 15s Team will be playing their World Cup Qualifying Series match against Chile right in our own backyard, and you’re invited.

It all kicks off on Saturday, October 2nd at Langford’s Starlight Stadium at 5 p.m., in what promises to be a spirited bout between rivals in their quest for the 2023 Rugby World Cup.

Even better, we’ve partnered with City of Langford and Rugby Canada to give away four tickets to the match, and you’ll find those contest details below.

This match will be an important one, as it will determine who will move on to the third qualifying round in July 2022.

The Rugby World Cup 2023 is being hosted in France, and occurs just once every four years, with 20 countries coming together ti compete in the event.

According to the City of Langford, The Rugby World Cup is the third largest sporting event in the world, and Canada has a track record of qualifying for the event every time the tournament has taken place since its inception in 1987.

The Canadian men last played at Starlight Stadium on February 22nd, 2019, where they secured a victory against Chile.

The event will be following all Provincial Health & Safety protocols; this will include the requirement to present a vaccine passport at the gate for entry, and wearing masks everywhere within the Stadium except when seated.

To be a part of this once in a lifetime action, grab your tickets online today!

Game two of the aggregate series will be played on October 9th, but this time, in Chile.
