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 2015 Serevi RugbyTown Sevens tournament at Infinity Park, Aug. 14-16, promises to be the best yet. 17 teams will be competing for the winner-take-all $10,000 purse, including three national teams looking to break onto rugby’s big stage. All five U.S. military branches will participate again as well as 2013 champions, the Collegiate All-Americans.
“The SRS tournament continues to grow in stature as we enter the fourth 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.
New to this year’s tournament is a boys’ high school (U18) tournament, which will take place on the Infinity Park Sports Field adjacent to the men’s tournament. This year’s inaugural participants include clubs such as Atlantis Rugby, Utah Lions, Atavus All-Stars, Upright Rugby Rogues (Canada), Rocky Mountain Rebels, Utah Cannibals and the Raptors Academy being featured.
