I think it could work quite well in other regions as well. Including Sth America.

One or even two in Argentina, one in each of Chile, Uruguay and Brazil and a 6th somewhere perhaps Colombia. There would even be room for womens to run alongside it at the same events with similar billing.


Rugby sevens is an attempt to attract casual fans. Therefore, franchises are a bad idea. National teams are better for casual fans.

Imagine a random tourist in Punta del Este that hears about the sevens tournament. If the teams are called Chiefs, Dragons, Knights, Giants, Lions, Panthers, Sharks and Wolves, that person won't care much. But if the teams are Uruguay, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, France, Italy and United States, it gets much more interesting.

The Torneo Valentín Martínez will be played next week, on Friday 10 and Saturday 11.

The international women's sevens tournament will feature seven teams: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, Paraguay, Perú and Uruguay.
They will play a round robin, with no playoffs.
The winner will play the Canada Sevens and World Cup, whereas the top two play the Hong Kong qualifier.

There were issues with the playing field at the Bolivarian Games.

The rugby tournament will start today at the Parque Deportivo Bolivariano.

How are there problems with the field? It's brand new and fits World Rugby 22 regulations. It looks super nice.

It looks like the rugby sevens tournament of the 2018 South American Games in Cochabamba (Bolivia) are moving forward. I found the competition guide: https://www.cochabamba2018.bo/uploads/i ... db5780.pdf

The tournament is scheduled to be played from May 27th to May 29th at the el Estadio Municipal de Colcapirhua, Cochabamba's outskirts. There will be men's and women's tournaments and the competitions worth 1 spot in the 2019 Pan American Games. Not sure who is alrerady qualified for the 2019 Pan American Games, but I guess Argentina is already there, as well Peru (host country).

Cochabamba is 2570 meters above sea level (8432 feet). Not quite extreme as La Paz but enough to have an impact in the games. I can see Colombia pulling some upsets.

The core World Series sides are already qualified. One spot will be decided in Cochabamba and the other one in the 2019 edition of the Sudamerica Rugby Sevens: http://www.sudamericarugby.org/2017/11/ ... ca-a-lima/

Cochabamba is not as high as La Paz i have never had problems when i played there, the Estadio Municipal de Colcapirhua is the first rugby-specific field in the country (currently Jenecheru rugby club is building its own).
What leaves me some doubt is the team that we will present considering that my club (Santa Cruz rugby club) is the national champion of seven in 2016, 2017 and we only have 2 selected players
