Earlier in September 2021, World Rugby had confirmed a number of changes to the 2021 and 2022 World Sevens Series. The event at BC Place in Vancouver sees core Series teams, as well as some invitational teams play, as not all nations can attend due to the global travel restrictions. Most notably for the men, NZ. Fiji and Australia are absent.
