A blockbuster schedule for next season’s HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series has been announced today with a full roster of teams and hosts, as the dynamic high-octane Olympic sport continues to grow, evolve and engage new fans around the globe. 

The competition will be intense from start to finish with the prize of Olympic Games Paris 2024 qualification on offer for the top four women’s and men’s teams in the 2023 Series standings. 

The Men’s World Series will include a record-equalling 11 rounds, uniquely featuring two events in Hong Kong, which is set to host the first round on November 4-6, 2022.

The Women’s World Series involves a record seven rounds and will kick off in Dubai on December 2-3, 2022, in the first of four consecutive men’s and women’s combined events.

Dubai is followed by Cape Town, South Africa on December 9-11 before all teams will compete in Hamilton, New Zealand (January 21-22) and Sydney, Australia (January 27-29) for the first time since 2020.  

The Men’s World Series then lands in Los Angeles, USA on February 25-26 before a combined round in Vancouver, Canada on March 3-5, which sees a change from previous series as the women’s tournament joins together with the men’s in front of the famously large, loud and colourful crowd at BC Place. 

Both men’s and women’s teams then move on to Hong Kong for the traditional blockbuster event on March 31-April 2, followed by a men’s round in Singapore on April 8-9.

The Women’s World Series will reach its exciting conclusion in Toulouse, France as part of a combined event on May 12-14, with the men’s finale coming a week later in London, England on May 20-21 to bring down the curtain on the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series for 2022/23.
