Tokyo 2020 7s rugby schedule confirmed
The schedule for rugby 7s at Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games have been announced by the Olympic Games organizing committee.
The men’s competition will take place from July 27-29th 2020 while the women’s competition will run from July 30th-August 1st at the Ajinomoto (Tokyo) Stadium. The stadium will also host games at the Rugby World Cup 2019.
The sessions during the Olympics will take place twice daily during the competition with morning sessions running from 9-12 and the second session taking place from 16:30-19:00. The times have been chosen to avoid the peak Summer heat times in Japan at that time of the year.

The women’s and men’s World Rugby Sevens Series are still in progress with the top 4 teams from each automatically gaining qualification to Tokyo 2020. The remaining seven places for each competition will be determined via a series of regional qualifiers and repechage competitions.
- Date: July 27 – August 1st 2020
- Venue: Ajinomoto (Tokyo) Stadium, Japan

The next women’s 7s World Series leg takes place this weekend in Japan at Kitakyushu while the next men’s sevens series event takes place in London at the end of May. Both series have two round left to determine the top 4 finishers.
