History

From what started 49 years ago with a small group of British expats at Dubai Exiles RFC, the Emirates Airline Dubai Rugby Sevens has grown into one of the world's premiere Sevens events.

Back in 1970, there were just a few players and a handful of fans scattered along the touchline. The Staffordshire Regiment were the first ever Dubai Rugby Sevens champion. Throughout the 70s, new innovations made the tournament bigger and better every year.

In 1987, the association with Emirates Airline began and by 1996 Dubai hosted a qualifying round of the World Cup Sevens.

In 1999, Dubai hosted a leg of the International Rugby Board's Sevens World Series, now the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series and since tehn the tournament has boomed! By 2006, with a 32,000 capacity at the Al Awir venue, the Dubai Rugby Sevens had officially tripled in size 2001.

In 2008 the event moved to the Emirates' purpose-built venue, The Sevens Stadium, and it just kept growing and growing and now sees over 100,000 fans walk through the gates!

In 2012, Dubai hosted the first event of the HSBC World Rugby Women's Sevens Series, which was won by New Zealand.
