Wellington Rugby Sevens Tournament - New Zealand

The Wellington Sevens or New Zealand Sevens is an annual rugby sevens tournament held in Wellington on the first weekend of February on the weekend following the USA Sevens tournament. The Wellington Sevens includes teams from 16 countries.

The event attracts over 30,000 spectators annually. The tournament has become Wellington’s largest sporting event, and one of New Zealand’s leading sporting events.

There is a fabulous party atmosphere, with most attendees choosing to wear fancy dress. Recent years have seen large groups of costumes that vary from Fred and Wilma Flintstone to the Care Bears, dance troops, wrestlers and much more.  Movie figures such as Men in Black (MIB) and Austin Powers are crowd favorites and an impersonator of Austin has been a regular feature each year performing to the crowd.
