Not sure where to start? Check out our Top 7 reasons why you should attend HSBC SVNS MAD:


  1. World-class sport

Across three thrilling days of competition, some of the world’s best athletes – including global rugby superstar Antoine Dupont - will display unmatched speed, skill, and athleticism in this shorter, fast-paced format of the game.

They will represent the world's top 12 men's and 12 women's rugby sevens teams, including powerhouse nations like the New Zealand All Blacks Sevens and Black Ferns Sevens, double men’s Olympic champions Fiji, South Africa, Australia, Argentina and host nation Spain.

These 12 teams will be joined by the top 4 men’s and women’s teams from the second-tier World Rugby HSBC Challenger Series, each of whom will be vying for promotion to the top-tier HSBC SVNS next season.


  1. Fast and furious action

Rugby sevens is an abbreviated form of rugby, featuring two teams of seven players. Played on a full-size rugby pitch, a rugby sevens match is 14 minutes long, consisting of two halves of seven minutes each. The opposing teams compete to score points via tries, conversions, penalties and drop goals. The winning team is the one with the most points at the end of the match. As in the 15-a-side game, the ball must be passed backwards and can be moved up the pitch by running, passing or kicking it.

Sevens rugby is full of energy and set on making big waves. Super-charged and thrill-a-minute, it’s the ultimate test of individual skills and fitness, guaranteeing end-to-end action and tries galore!


  1. Champions will be crowned

The 2024 HSBC SVNS season will reach a dramatic conclusion in Madrid as the top 8 teams play in a ‘winner takes all’ series to become Series Champions, while the bottom 4 teams will play-off against the winning teams from the World Rugby HSBC Sevens Challenger Series to qualify for the 2025 HSBC SVNS series.
