College 7s Nationals Headed To North Carolina


According to a report out of North Carolina the state will host the 2016 College 7s Nationals. The tournament will take place on May 27-29th at WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary, North Carolina. U.S.A. Rugby and fans will be familiar with the venue as it hosted the NACRA 7s last summer. The complex has several fields in addition to the main stadium and has a solid capability of streaming matches. The tournament is set to be streamed on the ESPN family of networks, which likely means the bulk on ESPN3/WatchESPN. The tournament was held at Denver University last year. It also comes three weeks after the 15s finals and one week before the CRC.

"We are thrilled to be awarded the 2016 USA Rugby College 7s National Championships. This is a great validation of the job the Triangle Sports Commission did earlier this year on the world's first-ever international Olympic Qualifying Tournament in the sport of Rugby 7s. We believe local fans will love the athletes and high energy competition of this national championship event,” said CEO of Sports & Properties (they run WakeMed Soccer Park) Hill Carrow.
