World Rugby’s revamped and rebranded global celebration of rugby sevens will take place across eight iconic cities over the next six months as 12 men’s and 12 women’s sides compete to be crowned champions in Madrid on 2 June, 2024.
The action will be intense from start to finish with World Rugby’s revamped competition formula set to provide rugby sevens fans with even more excitement, jeopardy and entertainment.
Under the new model, HSBC SVNS 2024 features seven regular season events plus a Grand Final. The top eight placed teams based on cumulative series points at the conclusion of HSBC SVNS SGP will secure their opportunity to compete in the new ‘winner takes all’ Grand Final in Madrid, where the women’s and men’s HSBC SVNS 2024 champions will be crowned.
Madrid will also play host to the high stakes relegation play-off competition where teams ranked ninth to 12th will join the top four teams from the World Rugby Sevens Challenger, with the top four placed teams securing their place on HSBC SVNS 2025.
In this weekend’s opening leg, Joyce’s Great Britain side find themselves in Pool A with demanding games against Fiji, New Zealand and South Africa while the Williams’ will take on Fiji, France and USA in Pool C of the men’s draw.
