The event brings world-class rugby sevens to fans in North Queensland in June and is the initiative of Oceania Rugby, proudly supported by the Australian Government’s PacificAus Sports program, the Queensland Government and Townsville City Council.
A unique new tournament under the Oceania Rugby Sevens brand the 2021 PacificAus Sports Oceania Sevens provides much needed high-performance preparation for the regions pre-qualified rugby teams ahead of the Tokyo Olympics Games.
The event features four men’s and four women’s teams with the national teams from Australia (current women’s Olympic gold medalist), Fiji (current men’s Olympic gold medalist) and New Zealand (current men’s and women’s Commonwealth and Rugby World Cup Sevens champions) joined by an Oceania Barbarian side in both the men’s and women’s draws.
The PacificAus Sports Oceania Sevens will be held at Queensland Country Bank stadium on 25-27 June 2021 ahead of the Tokyo Olympics in July.
This will be the first time Australia, Fiji and New Zealand have competed together since the cancelation of the 2020 HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series.
