Keen On Cape Town

Cape Town Sevens 2016 on the way

Posted on May 25th, 2016

After the massive success of last year’s inaugural Cape Town Sevens rugby tournament, fans will be happy to hear that the dates have been set for this year’s event. The Cape Town Sevens will be the second stop on the 2016/2017 World Rugby Sevens Series and is scheduled to take place on 10 and 11 December 2016. The BlitzBokke finished on top in the 2015 event with a hard-fought win over Argentina in the final and will be hoping to defend their crown on home soil later this year.


Sevens Rugby is growing all the time with its exciting mix of fast-paced rugby, global destinations and of course, the fun party-like atmosphere. The addition of Sevens Rugby to the Olympics this year will raise the profile of the sport even more.

Here’s the full schedule for the 2016/17 World Rugby Sevens Series:

  • Dubai: 2 & 3 December 2016
  • Cape Town: 10 & 11 December 2016
  • Wellington: 28 & 29 January 2017
  • Sydney: 4 & 5 February 2017
  • Las Vegas: 3 & 5 March 2017
  • Vancouver: 11 & 12 March 2017
  • Hong Kong: 7 & 9 April 2017
  • Singapore: 15 & 16 April 2017
  • Paris: 13 & 14 May 2017
  • London: 20 & 21 May 2017

Looks like details of ticket sales will be announced after the Springboks and Ireland Incoming Series in June.
