Super Sevens Series “Grows Again” for 2020

With the World Sevens Series starting with a bang for South Africa and New Zealand in Dubai and Cape Town, our management team have been working hard behind the scenes for our own Super Sevens Series in 2020.

With 2 more core teams added to the Men’s and Women’s competition we have also added 2 exciting new venues at Aldershot and Nottingham.

Finalising dates always proves challenging, as we do our best to avoid clashing with other Sevens events, but we think we have been able to achieve this for 2020.

The following dates and venues are now confirmed:

May 16 – Bury St Edmunds
We will once again return to the ever popular Bury St Edmunds RFC where the host club continues to set the standard for a successful 7s tournament with a fantastic family atmosphere. The facilities are 1st class with a good-sized crowd adding to the player/spectator experience.

June 13 – Newbury RFC
Following our first successful visit to Newbury in 2019 the club were very keen for us to join them again in 2020 where they will have additional time available to them to plan and market the event aggressively. Newbury intend to use the Bury St Edmunds leg as a model for the type of event they hope to be able to offer.

June 27 – Aldershot Military Stadium (British Army)
As a regular core side in the SSS our hosts were keen to offer us this fantastic venue and date as it coincides with National Armed Forces Day. The SSS teams will enjoy a great day as the British Army intend to create a celebratory and festival atmosphere within first class facilities.

July 11- Nottingham RFC
We have partnered with the RFU to combine the SSS finals day with the 24/7 finals for a festival of Sevens on July 11th with off pitch activities and an after party, adding to a special day where there is bound to be a fantastic party atmosphere.

Tournament Structure:
Adding a Women’s competition in 2019 proved to be a huge success and we have received huge interest from other Men’s and Women’s teams wishing to take part in our 2020 Series.

For 2020, we will increase the core sides in the men’s section to 14 and the women’s section to 6 with both sections allowing 2 guest teams at each event allowing for a 16 team and 8 team competition at each of the 4 legs. We have had so much interest, that even our guest team slots are 90% full.

As we go to press, we are in communication with several potential sponsors for 2020 and we hope to announce a Series sponsor early in the New Year.
