Six must-see March 2016 Vancouver events

Friday, February 26th, 2016
1.) Vancouver Canucks
If the team has any hope of getting back into the playoff race, it will start with improving their play on home ice. The month of March will present every opportunity for the team to do just that, with no less than nine home games on the calendar. Many of those games are against Western opponents sitting above them in the standings, so there isn’t a more important time for the Canucks to start stringing wins together.
Whether you’re a casual or diehard fan, there’s never been a better time to get great deals on Canucks tickets. ShowTimeTickets.com has tickets starting from just $39 (below box office) for many games all the way to the end of the season.
2.) Justin Bieber
Since a string of legal and public mischief incidents landed him in the headlines for all the wrong reasons in recent years, Justin Bieber is back on top of the charts with his latest <i>Purpose</i> album. His hit singles “What Do Your Mean?”, “Sorry” and “Love Yourself” are set to hit the stage at Rogers Arena on March 11th.
3.) Canada Sevens Rugby
For the first time ever, the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series is making a stop in Canada! Vancouver’s BC Place will host the much-anticipated Canada Sevens tournament on March 12th & 13th. Fans have been snapping up tickets to the event, with organizers tweeting that the event is 95% sold out. This is an event that sports fans will want to mark on their spring calendars!
World Cup Qualifying
After soccer fever swept up Vancouver for the 2014 FIFA Women’s World Cup, fans will get another chance to cheer on the red and white as the Canadian Men’s National Team takes on Mexico in World Cup Qualifying.
4.) Vancouver Whitecaps
2015 was the most successful season to date for the Whitecaps, which ended with a loss in the Conference Semifinals and being crowned the Amway Canadian Champions. Following the team’s on-field success, excitement for the upcoming season has never been higher. The Caps kick off their 2016 season at home on March 6th against the Montreal Impact.
Alessia Cara
You might know her best by her hit single “Here”, which has found regular airplay on local radio stations.

Familiar with the term “March Madness”? It’s not just the name given to the NCAA’s renowned college basketball championships – you can use that term to describe the event calendar for Vancouver this month. With spring on the way, headline concerts are kicking off to complement marquee sports events in the city.

Retooled, new-look Canucks begin the new season versus the Sharks

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2014

Vancouver Canucks ready for 2014-2015 seasonLooking to put their disastrous 2013/2014 season behind them, the Vancouver Canucks have been selling the notion of change to their fans. After falling just one game short of a Stanley Cup in 2011, the Canucks fell off the wagon with two consecutive first-round playoff exits in 2012 and 2013, and then missed the playoffs altogether in 2014 for the first time since 2008. The tail end of the 2013/2014 campaign saw the franchise part ways with its coaching staff, general manager, and several marquee players. Time will tell if the changes will translate to immediate success, but expectations have never been lower for the Canucks with the term “rebuild” no longer a four-letter word.

Notable departures:

  • Foward Ryan Kesler
  • Forward David Booth
  • Forward Mike Santorelli
  • Goaltender Roberto Luongo
  • Defenceman Jason Garrison
  • Coach John Tortorella
  • General Manager Mike Gillis
  • Notable additions

  • Forward Radim Vrbata – Signed as a UFA, expect him to be paired up with the Sedin twins to start the season.
  • Goaltender Ryan Miller – After being a rock in net for a bottom-feeding Buffalo Sabres franchise for eight seasons, the Canucks signed the veteran Miller to provide stability in net. The two-time Olympian will likely be given the starting role with Eddie Lack serving as a capable backup.
  • Forward Nick Bonino – Acquired from Anaheim in the Ryan Kesler trade.
  • Defenceman Lucas Sbisa – Acquired from Anaheim in the Ryan Kesler trade.
  • Coach Willie Desjardins
  • General Manager Jim Benning
  • It remains to be seen whether these changes will translate to a return to the playoffs, but it is clear that Canucks are responding to last year’s debacle with some fresh, up-and-coming faces.
    Do you think the changes will be enough to earn the Canucks a post-season berth?
