With seven players a side on a full-sized football field, playing two halves of just seven minutes with a one minute break, it’s a cut down, fast-moving, fast-scoring game.
- Sixteen teams from sixteen countries.
- Nine tournaments in venues all around the globe.
- A full knockout competition -- 45 games -- in a single weekend.
And from Friday 8th to Sunday 10th February, it’s the USA Sevens at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas.
In 2016, this will be an Olympic sport. Given the US won the last Olympic gold for rugby, albeit in 1924 and for the full code, it might be worth dipping your toes in the spectator waters on Saturday and Sunday with NBC Sports.
