USA Rugby Men’s Eastern & Western Sevens Open

USA Rugby Club Sevens Nationals Opens

This weekend, USA Rugby will be hosting automatic qualifiers for its Club 7s National Championship for the first time in its history. The Western Open will pit eight of the top programs in the western states against one another, and the Eastern Open will do the same, replicating a condensed version of the National Championship. The winners of each Open will secure their birth in nationals, will impact seeding in Nationals, as well as impacting the remaining qualifying tournaments.

Treasure Island, the home of San Francisco Golden Gate and the USA Rugby Club 7s National Championships from 2008-2012, will host the Western Open, while Northern Virginia will host the Eastern Open. The Eastern Open will be held at Morven Park, Leesburg, Virginia.
