The Vancouver Rugby Festival is currently taking registrations for interested teams. Like the Las Vegas Invitational the Vancouver Rugby Festival is trying to capitalize on teams interested in playing in a tournament while also taking in the HSBC Sevens Series. Last year's festival saw some of the best teams in North America come together, especially in the women's bracket where the U.S.A. Women put in a solid team. This year the U.S. men could step up and enter a team as well.
Brachets include Elite Men, Elite Women, Open Men, Open Women, Over 40s, Under 18 Boys, Under 18 Girls, Under 16 Boys, Under 16 Girls. Registration is $500 and can be found here. Teams that are playing in Vegas could make it a two week trip with a place in Vancouver. Teams get to play at the iconic Brockton Oval in Stanley Park, one of the most picturesque pitches in world rugby.
