World Rugby to announce new 7s schedule

World Rugby will announce the complete HSBC Sevens Series 2022 schedule later this month. 

Following the cancellation of competitions this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, sevens rugby will make a new return in 2022.

World Rugby in a statement said 2022 will be a very busy and exciting year with the Series followed by the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham on 29-31 July and concluding with the Rugby World Cup Sevens in Cape Town on 9-11 September.

Following rugby sevens’ captivating second appearance at the Olympic Games in Tokyo, this year, the sport returns to HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series action this month with a pair of HSBC Canada Sevens men’s events alongside women’s fast four tournaments in Vancouver on 18-19 September and Edmonton on 25-26 September, 2021.

The events in Canada will form the 2021 Series, with the Series title awarded in Edmonton, as an update to the planned schedule sees Dubai now host a pair of men’s and women’s combined events as the kick-off for the following year’s 2022 Series.

Unfortunately the HSBC Singapore Sevens and HSBC Cape Town Sevens planned for 29-30 October and 10-12 December respectively will not go ahead as planned in 2021.

The Emirates Dubai 7s will host a behind closed doors round on 26-27 November, 2021, followed by a second round on 3-4 December, 2021 with fans in attendance at the popular event in The Sevens Stadium.
