LA 7s & LAI
The newly-re-branded SVNS series, World Rugby’s world sevens circuit, kicks off in Dubai this weekend with both the USA Women and USA Men in action.
For the women, this is an experienced and talented group that is likely to be very similar to the roster for Paris 2024.
Ticket details have been announced for the fifth round of HSBC SVNS 2024 in Los Angeles which is set to be bigger and bolder than ever before with the addition of a second competition pitch and the ultimate next-level food, entertainment and live music experiences added to the weekend festivities on March 2-3, 2024 at Dignity Health Sports Park.
The LA 7s is back as SVNS LAX.
As part of the rebranding and relaunching of World Rugby's international 7s circuit into HSBC SVNS, the schedule of venues has been changed. However, Los Angeles remains part of the series.
World Rugby is relaunching and rebranding the international 7s circuit as the HSBC SVNS, with a smaller season and revamped schedule.
In announcing the new schedule today World Rugby touted the new plan, HSBC SVNS, as being "set to supercharge rugby’s global appeal as the ultimate festival of immersive experiences."
Editor’s Note: It has taken me some time to post this article because … well there’s other stuff going on and also because I had to talk to several people to get all the right information. It might, in some ways, seem like it’s a bit late and why bring it up, but there’s a good reason for me to write and publish this and I’ll attend to that in a second.
