Serevi RugbyTown 7s
International 7s Tournament
Rugby 7s, the quicker variation of traditional 15-a-side rugby union, is the newest Olympic sport set to debut at the Rio 2016 Games. Matches are played seven-a-side in two seven-minute halves and feature speed, strength and stamina.
The 2016 Serevi RugbyTown Sevens tournament at Infinity Park, Aug. 26-28, promises to be the best yet. 20 teams will be competing for the winner-take-all $10,000 purse, including all five U.S. military branches.
“The SRS tournament continues to grow in stature as we enter the fifth year of the competition,” said Glendale Raptors Director of Rugby Mark Bullock. “There are more international teams competing and the USA military teams have raised the standard of their play.”
Teams representing each American military branch − the Marines, Navy, Air Force, Army and Coast Guard will look to compete for both the overall tournament and military championships.
