The LA Invitational is shaping up quickly as the festival tournament held in conjunction with the LA 7s returns for a second year after a one-year hiatus due to COVID.
The LAI will be held March 4-5, with March 4 at the Great Orange Park in Irvine, Calif., and March 5 at the Dignity Health Sports Park fields.
Premier Rugby Sevens, the US-based pro 7s tour, will be expanding in 2022 with between four and six tournaments expected for the summer of next year.
The venues have not been finalized, but a profile of what kind of host city and venue is starting to come together.
Last month 24 players were recognized as the best of the Colorado Interscholastic Rugby Association (CIRA) by the coaches and invited to play in the Colorado State All-Star 7s game.
The Greer City Christmas 7s proved a very successful event with four brackets of 7s from Boys JV up to men's college.
The City of Greeg, SC sponsored and supported this event as a way to grow recreation within the city and get more visitors to the area. It worked superbly.
The City of Greer, SC and the Greer 76ers Rugby Club are hosting a Christmas 7s tournament this coming Saturday, Dec 10.
The tournament is hosted by the city's Parks & Recreation Department and in fact the city's P&R department started their own rugby program, the 76ers.
