Mexico City, home of the Campo Marte athletic grounds, will once again play host to the annual Rugby Americas North (RAN) Sevens tournament on November 25th and 26th, 2017. The international Men’s and Women’s tournament was last played on the nearly 62 thousand square meter facility in 2014.
All Members of RAN, including Bermuda are expected to participate. This year’s international competition is a qualifier for the 2018 Central American and Caribbean Sports Organization (CACSO) Games, 2018 Hong Kong Sevens, Rugby World Cup Sevens 2018 and Commonwealth Games.
“Mexico is really thrilled to once again host the RAN 7s,” said Francisco Echeguren, President of Federacion Mexicana de Rugby. “It’s going to be held in the same beautiful location, at Campo Marte, in the middle of Mexico City, and this year we plan to make upgrades to many aspects of the tournament, including the player areas, live stream and production and the post-tournament social.”
For over a decade RAN has organized the sevens tournament to increase competition within the region and provide member unions a professional setting to showcase the sport’s rapid growth.
