Rugby Sevens was first played at the Olympics in 2016 and since then has gained traction as one of the hottest sports in the globe. The HSBC World Series gets bigger every year in addition to the famous Hong Kong Sevens, which dates back to 1976, and is the biggest rugby sevens event annually. Other key destinations now have exciting World Series events including Sydney, Tokyo, Dubai, Vancouver and Los Angeles.
If you’re new to rugby sevens, it’s a faster-paced version of the traditional game of rugby; with 7 players per side and short seven-minute halves with only two minutes at half time. Dozens of matches are played each day over three days for both a women’s and men’s tournament. This all comes together as a fast-paced, exciting tournament with quick turn-overs, high scores, plenty of tries and hard-hits that test even the toughest defenders in the game. It’s a high risk/reward game with successful players combining speed with strength and stamina. Teams will play multiple games each day as they progress through the tournament. A rugby sevens tournament has a festival-like atmosphere with live entertainment, music, costumes and fun for all ages.
The last World Cup was held in San Francisco in 2018 and was the USA’s biggest ever rugby event with over 100,000 fans in attendance at the sold-out AT&T Park in downtown San Francisco. World Rugby Chairman Bill Beaumont labelled the 2018 World Cup as “one of the great rugby events”.
