As of the 1st September 2020 – The Rugby Football Union has advised that our current funding for the upcoming 2020/21 World Series and Olympic program has been cut after achieving Olympic qualification in July 2019. As a result we are seeking alternative sources of funding to help give us the best shot of achieving an Olympic medal in Tokyo, 2021.


We are the England Men’s and Women’s Rugby Sevens squads. Both teams compete in the HSBC World Sevens Series, The Commonwealth Games, The Rugby Sevens World Cup and forms a Team GB squad for the Olympic Games. The sevens environment is unique and challenging and we take pride in being different. Our squad sizes are small, the men’s comprising 18 full-time players, and the women’s just 15. It is because of this the Sevens is not just a team we play for, but a family.


Last summer, both squads achieved Olympic qualification. This Summer, both squads have faced redundancy due to major funding cuts. However, our mindset has stayed the same. As we strive for Olympic Gold, we also want to mould and shape the future of our sport in order to build a dynamic, sustainable and successful future for England Sevens.


Your support will help us to run a programme fit for gold. Helping to provide funding for equipment costs, training, match practice and playing staff. As well as travel to pre-Olympic camps and competitions.

We want to give back to our supporters so we are creating a mini docu-series so you can be a part of our journey to Tokyo. We are also keen to provide social events between players and sponsors, as well as formal events – giving you the chance to train and work with members of The England Sevens squad.
