Sevens in Wellington, New Zealand | What’s new for 2015?
With Rugby Sevens Fans around the world counting down to Rugby Sevens inaugural appearance at the 2016 Rio Olympics; the action will heat up in the New Zealand capital in 2015 with teams contending for the top four spots in the World Series, automatically qualifying for Rio.
Sevens Wellington, fourth on the HSBC Sevens World Series, will see 16 of the world’s top Sevens rugby nations battle it out at Westpac Stadium, 6 & 7 February 2015.
Team information and guest commentary will be a notification away with the Sevens Application, to be unveiled in the coming months. Your Sevens Wellington world will be right in your pocket the whole weekend, so you can keep your finger on the pulse while you are in the capital.
You will be treated to world-class rugby and entertainment, with live performances, revamped fan zones, chill out areas and DJ’s to get the crowd pumped.
Avoid the fear of missing out and get down to the stadium from 11am to bust out your dance moves, win prizes and cheer on our boys in black as they defend their title. There’s only one place where a sidestep meets Superman and a line-out meets The Lion King. Make sure you are there when rugby meets awesome in Wellington.
We all want the event to be a success. A lot of hard work has gone into ensuring that’s exactly the case in 2015.
We have applied for a special liquor licence as an alternative option to ensure we can provide alcohol in 2015. We will continue to work with the Health Promotion Agency, Wellington Police, and Westpac Stadium to make sure this licence works well for everyone. Read more…
