Tickets are on sale now for the Serevi RugbyTown Sevens International rugby tournament August 14-16, 2015 at Infinity Park in Glendale.
Seventeen teams from across the nation and the world, including teams from each branch of the United States Military, will compete in 50 rugby matches over the three-day period for a winner-take-all $10,000 prize.
As rugby players across the world gear up for the 2015 Rugby World Cup and the re-introduction of Rugby 7s play to the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio, fans can expect to see fast-paced, high-intensity matches featuring World Cup and Olympic hopefuls.
Teams representing each American military branch − the Marines, Navy, Air Force, Army and Coast Guard will look to compete for both the overall tournament and military championships.
Several foreign national teams will make their return in this year’s tournament, teams which include Bermuda, the Bahamas, and Mexico. Canadian-based club Upright Rugby Rogues will further represent competition north of the border.
Other club teams competing in this year’s event include the Glendale Raptors, Texas-based Negro y Azul, Northeast Olympic Development Academy, the Serevi Institute, Stars Rugby 7s, Collegiate All-Americans, the Denver 7s and Eastern U.S. venture Atlantis, a rugby invitational side which specializes in sevens.
