Each university making it to the Finals must prove themselves as the best in their country by winning a national competition, which in turn qualifies them for the final shoot-out at the Recreation Ground in Bath, United Kingdom, on September 17, 2016. That shoot-out will see the 10 qualified universities – plus reigning champions and hosts Bath University – battle through group stages, with the top two teams going on to play in the final in front of a capacity 14,000 crowd as a warm-up to a Bath Rugby Aviva Premiership clash.

The tournament will be from 11am – 7pm at Infinity Park on August 25th. Tournament attendance is free for spectators!

  1. "Each university making it to the Finals must prove themselves as the best in their country by winning a national competition." So when is that competition going to be held? What was the qualification for this tournament? Utah is the only team on the list to have ever won a CRC (back in 2010). There's no USA Rugby 7s champion on the list. It looks like they're declaring that they are selecting a champion by invitation (like the CRC), but (unlike the CRC), they're not inviting a slate of teams that could arguably be the best.
