The Tournament

The Amsterdam Sevens tournament has been hosted at the Amsterdam Rugby Club: AAC since 1972. In these two days you will see the home town clubs as well as the best Rugby Sevens teams from around the world! The invited teams are mixed teams with players from national sides and the best professionals around. With rugby becoming an Olympic Sport in 2016 the participation of Dutch rugby players increased in a short time period as the level of the games itself. We are set for another great and thrilling weekend of the best Seven a Side rugby!


With over 120 teams including Men’s Pier, Shield & Cup tournament, Ladies Pier & Shield tournament and a Veterans 10 a side tournament, there will be no time left for a dull moment. Action, the whole weekend through and let’s not forget our Friday morning School tournament. We welcome these school kids and their parents with pride!


It’s gonna be great, awesome, trust me! It will be RUGBY FIRST. And the Americans will pay for it. Absolutely fantastic 😉


For hosting the tournament we use every inch of Sport Park de Eendracht, which is a park for multiple sports including the Amsterdam Rugby Club and the Dutch National rugby Stadium with their artificial pitch. Not even pouring rain will stop us from a good game!


Amsterdam Sevens is a professional tournament set in a relaxed atmosphere, which makes it a great place to enjoy rugby with family and friends. In particular the social aspect of our tournament is very important. We love to know the stories behind the teams and pride ourselves on the fact that people from around the world meet up at our tournament every year.


There is a hospitality court where you can enjoy delicious Dutch food and specialties from all around the globe. Here you can also find with our official merchandizing and last but not least a bouncy castle for the kids. Enjoy!
