Munich is set to host massive international 7s tournament
During the last weekend of September 2017, some of the world’s finest international 7s teams will travel to the famous Olympic stadium in Munich in order to bring the game to the Bavarian capital.
The Oktoberfest 7s will take place on the 29th and 30th of September 2017. Beside hosts Germany, teams such as Australia, South Africa and England compete during the two-day tournament.
A stadium with a capacity of 69k seats plus international 7s during the world-famous Oktoberfest sounds like a fantastic mix. The chairman of the German Rugby Board (DRV) Klaus Blank said “Rugby and Oktoberfest fit together perfectly, fun meets a robust sport with a high entertaining value”.
The event is organised in partnership between the DRV and World Rugby.
