How It All Started
The Canada Cup International Wheelchair Rugby Tournament was created in 2004 by BC Wheelchair Sports Association, in order to provide another elite competition opportunity in wheelchair rugby. Canada Cup takes place biennually and is considered to be one the most prestigious wheelchair rugby tournaments outside of a World Championship or Paralympic Games.
Originally held at the Bonsor Recreation Centre in Burnaby, BC, the event has been held at the Richmond Oval since 2012. It brings together the world’s top teams in preparation for the Paralympic Games or World Wheelchair Rugby Championships. The Canada Cup has featured many legendary matches serving as a proving ground and launching pad for some of the sport’s biggest stars.
