Kick off the summer with a fix of high-quality rugby like no other. Some of the best 7s players on the planet are in the capital this weekend as their teams go head-to-head for supremacy at the London Sevens in the penultimate round of the World Rugby Sevens Series.
There’s no better time to discover rugby sevens as it enjoys a stellar year in the spotlight. Following the London Sevens the sport will feature at the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham on 29-31 July and conclude with the Rugby World Cup Sevens in Cape Town on 9-11 September.
With fast, open play, mesmerising skills and blistering pace, the London Sevens action never stops from the first whistle until the last. What’s more, with a leading line-up of street food, drinks and music (from a DJ to acoustic sets) and the Fan Village (with big screen and chill-out zones) you don’t need to just be watching the rugby to enjoy yourself with friends and family.

The action has unfolded via Malaga, Seville, Vancouver, Singapore and France with this weekend in London marking the penultimate round before the ultimate men’s series winners are crowned in Los Angelas in August. The women’s series has now finished with Australia finishing top of the standings.
