The world’s finest rugby talent descends on the capital on the Spring Bank Holiday weekend when Twickenham Stadium hosts the IRB World Sevens Series.
The home of rugby will play host to a huge party in the 82,000-capacity stadium, as friends and family alike flock to experience the flowing rugby, fancy dress and carnival atmosphere of the most action-packed rugby event on the calendar.
This is no ordinary matchday, with 16 top international sides pitting their wits across a packed weekend of 44 games. From witnessing the guile of the Australians to the flair of the Fijians, every leading international side and brand of rugby is represented as vital points are up for grabs in the world series.
England currently lead the Series alongside South Africa having emerged victorious from the event in Wellington, New Zealand and runners-up in San Diego, California.
With tickets for this fantastic event starting from just £10 and £5 for juniors, the only worry should be what fancy dress to choose for a classic weekend of fast-paced entertainment on and off the pitch on Saturday 23rd May and Sunday 24th May
Paul Vaughan, Business Operations Director said: “We’re delighted the IRB World Sevens Series is back at Twickenham. The Sevens series is wonderfully unpredictable, whilst the high-scoring games are a firm favourite with fans. The Emirates Airline London Sevens Series gives the public a great opportunity to watch the top performers in the world at a truly iconic stadium for a fun-filled weekend.”
