World Rugby has announced the full breadth of the 2021-22 HSBC Sevens Series, which begins Nov. 26-27 in Dubai, UAE, and ends May 28-29 in London. The women have seven stops and their series ends on May 20-22 in Toulouse, France. The men have 10 stops. Read the full press release here.
2021-22 WOMEN’S 7s SERIES
Nov. 26-27 @ Dubai, UAE
Dec. 3-4 @ Dubai, UAE
Jan. 21-23 @ Malaga, Spain
Jan. 28-30 @ Seville, Spain
April 1-3 @ Hong Kong
April 30-May 1 @ Langford, BC, Canada
May 20-22 @ Toulouse, France
The men do not feature in the Langford tournament but have stand-alone events in Vancouver (Feb. 26-27), Los Angeles (March 5-6), Singapore (April 9-10) and London (May 28-29). For USA 7s fans, the omission of a women’s bracket from the LA 7s (and its predecessor in Las Vegas) is nothing new. The 2020 event hosted a Los Angeles Invitational, which featured a Women’s Elite competition with a USA Falcons squad, senior select sides and Lindenwood University. It’s also worth noting that New Zealand and Australia have been removed from the World Series.
