The top 12 Rugby Sevens nations in the world will play in the Cup competition and compete for the last Series points of the season, while another eight teams will battle it out for three core team places on next year's Series.

Russia are one of those eight nations and, with the Rugby World Cup Sevens in Moscow fast approaching, Russian television is set to broadcast live World Series coverage for the first time.

In all, 24 broadcasters will take live and delayed-live coverage to 241 million homes in 141 countries, with 15 broadcasters also airing the IRB's official highlights programme IRB Sevens World, boosting the number to 330 million homes in 152 countries.
