Win Tickets to HSBC Canada Sevens Rugby
Just in time for Halloween — what would rugby and Halloween have in common? you might wonder — I’m giving away a Canada Rugby Sevens prize pack. You see a big part of the tournament, I’ve come to learn, is dressing up as it hosts a carnival atmosphere where fan wears either fancy dress or a costume of some kind. Groups of fans dress in themed costumes and sometimes host cities have their own themes (like monsters or galactic) to inspire fans.
So while you’re thinking about your Halloween costume, also look ahead to Canada Rugby Sevens in March. That will be even easier to do if you win my prize pack! It includes: 2 tournament passes, costumes for you to wear to the tournament (winner + guest), and some Canada Sevens branded merchandise.
Here’s how you can enter to win:
- Leave a comment naming what kind of costume you might wear to the tournament should you win these contest tickets (1 entry)
- Post the following on Twitter (1 entry)
Follow Canada Sevens on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. The HSBC World Rugby Women’s Sevens Series will be held at Westhills stadium in Langford BC, April 2016 (exact dates will be announced in the coming weeks).
I will draw one winner at random from all entries at 12:00pm on Sunday, November 1, 2015.
Update The winner is @rhansen!
