Beginner’s Guide to Emirates Airline Dubai Rugby Sevens

Calling all rugby fans: the Emirates Airline Dubai Rugby Sevens is returning!

As one of the Middle East’s most popular sporting events, people gather from across the world to take part in the Emirates Airline Dubai Rugby Sevens. Taking place between 30 November – 2 December 2017, you can expect a weekend of action-packed rugby, as well as plenty of activities for families and even a rock concert to close the festivities!


What is the rugby sevens?

Having made its debut in the 2016 Summer Olympics, the Rugby Sevens is now recognised as an Olympic sporting event, and takes place all over the world.

Each side has seven players, with the game taking place on a normal field. Games are shorter than your usual rugby match, lasting for only seven to ten minutes each half. With only seven players a side, these games tend to be much faster and higher scoring, with players able to perform astonishing feats.
