Sanctioned by USA Rugby and its Collegiate Council, the Rugby 7s Collegiate Championships is the official national championship tournament event for both men’s and women’s collegiate 7s. Rugby 7s Collegiate Championships will be broadcast live on NBC and CNBC, with additional coverage streamed on Peacock.
The inaugural R7CC tournament will be hosted at Kennesaw State University’s Fifth Third Bank Stadium from May 14th through 15th, 2022 and feature the top teams in the country, both men’s and women’s teams, across 3 divisions each, as well as varsity women’s teams that are members of the National Intercollegiate Rugby Association (NIRA).
R7CC will follow the Olympic format of seven players per side and seven minutes per half, showcasing the high scoring and fast-paced nature of the sport. Men’s and women’s teams will make up the tournament fields, whose champions will be crowned following an electrifying slate of more than 100 matches over two days.
In addition to highlighting the best collegiate clubs playing on American pitches today, R7CC will simultaneously act as an entertainment destination for all, treating its 15,000+ visitors to a two day festival that celebrates all things rugby, as well as the best artisans, food, drink, and music the greater Atlanta area has to offer.
