Rugby Sevens 2020 Fixtures Preview

Fiji heads into the new season as the reigning champions after a season which saw them win five of the ten tournaments. They held-off the United States, who finished in second courtesy of a raft of second-place tournament finishers, New Zealand, and South Africa. Those four teams will once again be the teams to beat this season, though the other sides will certainly have their sights set on victories at individual events. Of those eleven other teams, all participated in the last season as a core team with the exception of Ireland, who replace the relegated Japan.

The new season will consist of the same ten individual events that made up the last season in the same order, beginning in Dubai in December and culminating in Hong Kong at the end of October, with the only notable change being that the USA fixture has been moved from Las Vegas to Los Angeles.

** 2020 Sevens Postponement Announced **

World Rugby has announced that the 2020 season will be suspended until at least September. The reason for this is due to the COVID-19 coronavirus, and concerns that the games and arenas may expose players and fans to this community health concern. World Rugby will use this hiatus to determine the next steps for moving forward in regard to the coronavirus. If any significant new details about Super Rugby’s plans for the remainder of the 2020 season are made available, this notice will include them and the TV fixtures will be updated.
