After having three successful years at Allianz Stadium, the only integrated tournament on the World Sevens Series calendar will light up Sydney’s west between February 1-3 and in a tournament first, the opening day of action will have free entry for all fans. 

Australia will be defending it's women's and men's titles after taking it out earlier this year. 

“This is a great opportunity for families and Rugby fans in the greater Sydney region to come along and experience the fun and excitement of the HSBC Sydney 7s and witness truly world class athletes play one of the fastest growing sports in the world," Rugby Australia Chief Executive Raelene Castle said.

“The major highlight of any Sevens tournament anywhere in the world is seeing the passion and flair of the Fijian fans, and we know that there are large communities of Fijians and Rugby fans from other island nations in western Sydney who have been waiting for the opportunity to experience the tournament in their own backyard.”

It will also be the third year the women's event will be held after becoming an officially-sanctioned women's world series event in 2017.
