WHAT IS THE RFU SECURE TRADING SEVENS SERIES

FOR THE MEN'S & LADIES'S OPEN TOURNAMENT?

The RFU Secure Trading Sevens Series is an RFU community rugby programme to promote the great game of rugby 7s, with 40 existing sevens festivals becoming qualifiers for National RFU Secure Trading Sevens Series Finals on 29th June for Mens & Ladies Open and Social Teams. MKRUGGERFEST is expected to retain its qualifying status for the series.

These qualifiers ultimately feed the Sevens Series National Final on 29th June 2019 (venue tbc). Teams that compete in Local Qualifying tournaments will accumulate series points, and following the conclusion of the last local qualifier in the calendar, the top 20 male and the top 20 female teams will progress to the national finals. 

Further details of the RFU Secure Trading Sevens Series will be communicated to all teams once confirmed by the RFU.

The RFU Secure Trading Sevens and MKRUGGERFEST will showcase some of the best sevens teams and players in the country.

A heady, high octane, adrenalin fuelled mix to inspire every rugby club in England. This is a competition for rugby weekend heroes, who want to live the sporting, high life year round, non stop, 24:7. MKRUGGERFEST is proud to be affiliated with the official England RFU Secure Trading Sevens Series and looks forward to showcasing the best rugby our region has to offer.
