The recreational opportunities in and around the community of Westhills are phenomenal! Unique to this area is access to international rugby. In mid 2011, the City of Langford and Rugby Canada partnered, making City Centre Park and Westhills Stadium national headquarters for the Canada’s men’s and women’s rugby teams, providing the first ever location to hold a Canadian invitational!
Starting on Friday, October 12th the Westhills Stadium will be taken over by the Americas Rugby Championship! Games will be taking place on Friday, October 12th, Tuesday October 16th and Saturday, October 20th.
Take advantage of this rare opportunity to experience world-class sporting event, right in our very own backyard. Rugby Canada’s international 15s team will be joined by teams from the US, Uruguay and Argentina. This is the third annual tournament, which in the past has been hosted by Argentina, but for the first time will be held here in Langford.
The opportunity to invite these talented athletes to play in our city has been welcomed by both Rugby Canada and the City of Langford. Langford is home to Rugby Canada’s High Performance training centre and world class facilities, and bringing the championship here, “makes it that much more special” said Graham Brown, Rugby Canada CEO.
