Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games

Queensland's Gold Coast was awarded the rights to host the XXI Commonwealth Games in November 2010 after beating Hambantota in Sri Lanka by 43 votes to 27.

The 25,000-seater Robina Stadium will play host to Rugby Sevens at the 2018 Commonwealth Games, with the Men's Sevens team looking to improve on its Bronze Medal performance in Glasgow in 2014. It was announced in October 2014 that for the first time in the history of the Commonwealth Games, that Women’s Rugby Sevens will be a part of the program.

South Africa won the Gold Medal at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow in 2014, with New Zealand having previously won every other time Rugby Sevens had been played at the Games since the sport’s introduction into the program in Kuala Lumpur in 1998.
