TWICKENHAM STADIUM will be hosting a major new 7s tournament this summer as the growth of the game accelerates towards Olympic inclusion in Rio in 2016.
The new World Club 7s brings together, for the first time, some of the biggest names in club and provincial rugby from the Northern and Southern Hemispheres, together with some of the emerging names in the 7s game. There will be a family friendly, summer carnival atmosphere.
The 12 teams competing in the inaugural tournament on the 17th and 18th August 2013 at Twickenham Stadium include top Aviva Premiership Teams Harlequins and Northampton Saints as well as the winners from this year’s J.P. Morgan Premiership Rugby 7s. They will be joined by the likes of the DHL Western Province and Vodacom Blue Bulls from South Africa, Auckland from New Zealand, ACT Brumbies from Australia, and Buenos Aires of Argentina. They will also be competing against teams from America, New York and San Francisco and VVA Moscow Region and Kuban Krasnador from Russia, as the established and emerging rugby worlds meet.
“Rugby is about to enter a unique era for the sport with Sevens – which is finally returning to the Olympics – at the centre of what we believe will be a huge growth in all forms of the game,” said Premiership Rugby Chief Executive Mark McCafferty. “The tournament is then set to expand further in 2014 and 2015 as 7s Rugby heads towards its debut at the Rio Olympics in 2016 and will include the strongest club and provincial teams in the world qualifying through domestic 7s championships.”
