The HSBC Sevens World Series tour comprises of nine distinct events throughout the season, across five continents.
Each individual tournament involves 16 teams – with the exception of the 24 team bonanza in Hong Kong – the 12 IRB sevens core sides and four other invited sides.
The nine tournament venues all have an individual character and offer something unique to players and fans. From the history-steeped Hong Kong tournament to the eminent Twickenham Stadium for the London Sevens, the landscape may change, but the competition is consistently fierce as teams pursue points for the series title.
Fan's festivals, beer tents, outrageous costumes, family areas, and continuous try-scoring action on the turf, is the recipe for fun for sevens crowds all over the world.
