Organisers of the Emirates Airline Rugby Dubai 7s have revealed plans for a scaled down version of the annual tournament, following the cancellation of the emirate’s leg of the HSBC World Seven Series last month as a result of the global Covid-19 pandemic.

The event, which has still to receive approval from the government and various governing bodies, is scheduled to be held on December 4 and 5 and will feature all of the GCC divisions of participation in rugby, netball and cricket


Tournament director, Tom Burwell, said: “We are disappointed that the HSBC World Sevens Series is unable to take place in Dubai in 2020 but this is also an opportunity to deliver something unique for players and local fans at the end of what has been a very tough year.

Pitch Two will become the main field and will have a unique feel to it. Tournament goers will still enjoy marquee experiences including the Heineken Tavern, experiential cocktail bars, fantastic family fun and of course some brilliant local sport. Our intention is to build an experience that truly encapsulates 51 years of the Dubai 7s.”
