Canada Rugby Union TicketsCanada has a long history of playing rugby. McGill University competed against Harvard, MIT and Cambridge all the way back in the 18th century, marking the beginning of rugby in the country. Despite this long history, rugby didn’t gain popularity in Canada until the 1960s, just like its neighbor to the north, the United States. The turning point came when the Canada Rugby Union was formed to increase awareness of the sport in the region. These efforts helped Canada to become one of the strongest teams in North America, though the team still struggles to find the consistency of European and Australian teams. Canada is also among the 16 teams that were invited by the International Rugby Board in the first World Cup in 1987. Since the World Cup, Canada's main rivals are the United States and South American teams. Accordingly, the team has also recorded victories against the top-tier nations in major international events.

Where does Canada play its home matches?The Canadian rugby team does not have an official home ground. It continues to play its international matches across different venues in Canada. In recent years, experts have been quoted to suggest that the team will soon have a permanent place in Vancouver. The main reason for selecting Vancouver as a preferred destination is its mild winter weather compared to other destinations in Canada and its fame as the home of rugby in Canada. If you want to see the team in action, go to Westhill Stadium in the city of Langford, British Columbia, which serves as the unofficial home of the team when they're not competing in a major event.
Can I watch an international match at Westhill Stadium?The Westhill Stadium mainly serves as the practice venue and training center for the team. Despite the fact that the stadium has hosted several international matches, the Canadian Rugby team mostly uses it for training and as a rehabilitation and injury treatment facility. So while you can often watch and meet your favorite players at the stadium, most international matches are scheduled at BMO Field in Toronto or at BC Place in Vancouver.
What are some of the most historic victories of the Chanucks?The Canadian team has won several significant matches, mostly in the ’90s. These wins came against strong top-tier opponents such as Wales, Argentina, Italy and France. In 1990, Canada twice overpowered its much stronger rival, Argentina, at home and at Estadio José Amalfitani in Buenos Aires. Another historic win came in 1993 when the team defeated a strong Wales team at Cardiff Arms Park in Wales. With all of these major victories, Canada was regarded as the top team in the Americas in the ’90s.
