LA Invitational A Massive Festival: Details

The Los Angeles Invitational tournament has released some additional details for the event that serves as a satellite tournament to the LA SEVENS HSBC Sevens World Series event Feb 29-March 1 2019.

More than two dozen brackets will be part of the LAI, which will be held at two venues with professionally-managed grass fields in the Los Angeles area.

Games will be Friday, Feb. 28 all day, and then the early part of the day on Saturday, Feb. 29.

Friday, Feb 28 Details

The LAI games will be held 8AM to 5PM at the Orange County Great Park in Irvine, Calif.

This complex has up to 20 grass fields where all of the games will be held, from youth to adult elite. You might have a middle school 7s tournament game going on at one field, and a major college matchup on the next field. The tournament will be a rugby festival for all ages, and the tournament will provide medical support and food trucks as well as other amenities.

Saturday, Feb 29 Details

The fields on the Dignity Health Sports Park campus will be used for Saturday. That way teams can play their Saturday games and walk right to the LA Sevens tournament in the main stadium.

There will be bag drops for teams that want to see the tournament, meaning that teams don't have to return to hotels before going to see the World Series games.

The Best Of Both Worlds

Teams will enjoy playing rugby on very high-quality grass fields in a festival atmosphere. The city offers plenty of activities for any age, from Disney World to nightlife, the beaches, and Hollywood.

And after playing, everyone can go see the LA Sevens World Series event with the biggest stars in the Olympic version of the game.
