Fantastic Singha Premiership Rugby 7's comes to Gloucester!


Fantastic Singha Premiership Rugby 7's comes to Gloucester!

Premiership Rugby can today confirm that tickets for this summer's Singha Premiership Rugby 7s Series have now gone on sale.

The series will kick off at Kingsholm Stadium, home of Gloucester Rugby on Thursday 20 August, with the Series Final eight days later at the Twickenham Stoop and tickets for all venues can be bought by clicking HERE.

The only 7s competition in which all 12 Aviva Premiership Rugby clubs take part will also be staged at the Ricoh Arena and Kingston Park as the Series moves around the country.

  • Singha Premiership Rugby 7s Series starts on Thursday 20 August at Kingsholm Stadium, home of Gloucester Rugby
  • Final to be staged at the Twickenham Stoop on Friday 28 August
  • It has been agreed for the Welsh Regions to enter the Singha Premiership Rugby 7s Series for the second year with an announcement on a Welsh date and venue to follow.


Gloucester will be looking to make it three wins in a row in the tournament having triumphed in the Final at the Rec in 2013 and at The Stoop in 2014 and, as a result, going on to participate in the World Club 7s at Twickenham.

Kingsholm has kicked off the tournament in style for the past three years, with bumper crowd enjoying the shortened form of the game and passionately cheering on the Cherry and Whites.

Tickets will be priced at £10 for adults, £5 concessions and £1 for children. The event will form part of the Club Member package.

"The 7s Series kicked off in 2010 and since then it has become a significant date in the rugby calendar," said the Rugby Director at Premiership Rugby, Phil Winstanley.

"We started last season's event with more than 13,000 people at Kingsholm and we expect the demand to be high again this year.

"Twelve months before rugby returns to the Olympics - in Rio - it is crucial that Premiership Rugby continues to lead the way when it comes to club 7s. This will be an important competition and will start a run-in to the Olympic Games when rugby will be firmly in the world spotlight."

Last season the Welsh Regions made their debut in the competition which was won by Gloucester Rugby, coached by Olly Morgan.
