Here are just a few things fans can expect at AT&T Park:
- The biggest rugby party in the world – fans from 28 countries around the world wearing costumes, having fun and celebrating their proud rugby cultures.
- The best teams – The world-renowned New Zealand All Blacks Sevens battle Fiji Men’s Sevens, the 2016 Gold Medal Olympians. Our own USA Women’s and Men’s teams will also join the action.
- A brand-new, innovative tournament format will make sure that every match counts this year. Each sevens match consists of two halves of seven minutes with a two-minute half-time break, meaning non-stop action over the course of three full days this summer…unlike anything AT&T Park has ever seen before.

“We are thrilled to be hosting this prestigious World Rugby tournament in 2018. Since our ballpark opened in 2000, we have hosted many world-class events,” said San Francisco Giants President and CEO Larry Baer. “To now have the opportunity to welcome the top rugby sevens players and their fans from all over the world to AT&T Park is a great honor for us.”
This will be the seventh staging of the tournament, which has previously been held in Edinburgh, Hong Kong (twice), Mar del Plata, Dubai and Moscow. Having won both the men’s and women’s events at the famous Russian venue of Luzhniki Stadium, New Zealand will be back to defend their titles but will likely face considerable resistance in the form of Olympic gold medalists Australia (women’s) and Fiji (men’s), not to mention strong home competition from both USA sides.
