The Marriott London Sevens 2015 is heading into space! After a phenomenal start to the HSBC Sevens World Series, the rugby is ready to rock and the stadium is ready to roll.
Last year’s Monster theme was a cracking weekend stuffed full of fantastic rugby action, some wild moves, both on and off the field, and some brilliant fancy dress efforts. With record breaking crowds again coming through the turnstiles, surpassing the records set at the 2012 and 2013 events, 2015 has a lot to live up to. The 2014 event again saw more than 113,000 fans head through the gates over the two days including a record breaking sell out crowd of 75,000 crowd on the Saturday.
2015 promises to take you on a ride into galaxies far far away with weekend of action that is bigger, better and louder!
The London round will again be the final event of the HSBC Sevens World Series, with the action having kicked off in Australia in October, and having already passed through Dubai and South Africa the players are bursting to get going with the ultimate goal of winning in London, and finishing in the top four of the HSBC Sevens World Series to secure the all important qualification for the 2016 Olympics in Rio.
The carnival atmosphere generated by the fans in the stands is almost unrivalled in the Twickenham calendar and with fancy dress galore, coupled with exclusive competitions and unique entertainment.

This season sees the added incentive for those teams finishing the series in the top four, with qualification for the Olympics in 2016 guaranteed for the top four placed nations, if England qualify in the top four, they will qualify Team GB for the first ever Olympic Sevens tournament.
