It wouldn’t be Vancouver Sevens without the tradition of outrageous and fun “fancy dress” costumes or donning a patriotic outfit to support one’s country. While we encourage creativity, we also value safety, respect, and good judgement. If you’re planning to attend the event, take a moment to read over our guidelines that ensure all fans can enjoy Vancouver’s biggest party!

In addition to the specific information pertaining to BC Place Prohibited Items, costumes (including items that may be deemed potentially hazardous to other guests) may be subject to enhanced inspection upon entry. Custom masks are permitted only to be worn while in your seat. Custom masks cannot be worn on the concourse or common areas. Keep costume accessories limited. Hockey sticks, tennis rackets, swords, spears, toy weapons, etc. are not permitted. Remember that costumes deemed to be offensive may not be permitted inside the stadium. This includes costumes that may offend from a religious, political, racial and/or sexual perspective.

With the event taking place in early March, and being an all-day event, we plan to have the roof closed for the duration of the tournament.

BC Place should be considered an ‘open-air’ stadium whether the roof is open or closed, and guests are encouraged to dress accordingly, based on the temperature outdoors.


Children age two and under will be admitted free as long as the child is sitting on an adult’s lap. If a parent requires a physical seat for the child, he/she must purchase a ticket.
