GB Sevens will host ‘International Rugby 7s’, an Olympic preparation event, later this month, with the tournament taking place at St. George’s Park between 15-17 May.

On the men’s side, Great Britain will be joined by USA and Ireland, with the women’s teams of France and Ireland competing alongside Great Britain. The unique format will see two games for each side per day, with points to be gained towards the final standings throughout the three days.

The tournament will be played behind-closed-doors, with the event streamed in full on England Rugby's media channels.

GB Sevens team leader Charlie Hayter said: “It’s a great chance for international sides to compete in the run up to Tokyo and before the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series 2021.

“We are thankful for the huge amount of work and collaboration by numerous stakeholders to make this event possible.

“For our squads to pull on a Great Britain shirt for the first time in a competitive tournament is a big step towards Tokyo. We are grateful to National Lottery players for supporting GB7s and helping to make this journey possible.”
