Included in the draw for Glasgow - and London - are Japan, who won through the tough 12-team qualifier competition in Hong Kong to win promotion as a core team on next season's HSBC Sevens World Series 2014/15.
As the Hong Kong champions, New Zealand will start in Pool A in Glasgow and face a mouth-watering tie with closest Series rivals South Africa, as well as Samoa and Portugal.
As the Hong Kong runners-up England head Pool B and will play matches on day one in Glasgow against Canada, France and newly-promoted Japan.
Fiji face Wales, Argentina and Kenya in Pool C and Australia will face USA, tournament hosts Scotland and Spain in Pool D.
