The Amsterdam Sevens have been hosted from 1972 by the Amsterdam Rugby Club: AAC. The rugby that is shown every year over these 2 days, is the best Rugby Sevens from around the world. The Invitation Teams are made up of players from national sides and the best professionals around. With the sport becoming an Olympic Sport, the level of play has become even higher than it already was. This makes that we are set for a great trilling weekend of the best Sevens!


With over 120 teams including Men’s Pier, Shield and Cup tournament, Ladies Pier and Shield tournament and a Veterans 10 a side tournament, there will not be a dull moment with action the whole weekend through. And let’s not forget our Friday morning School tournament. With pride we welcome these school kids and their parents!


The Tournament  takes place on the grounds of our sport park of which we use every inch, including our National Stadium with their artificial pitch. Even when it is raining we will be sure of a quick game!
