The stopover in Cape Town will be the third in the 2022/23 HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series, with the opening tournaments taking place in Hong Kong (4-6 November) and Dubai (2-3 December).
The tournament consists of 16 men’s and 12 women’s teams, playing in pools, with the top teams progressing to the Cup quarter-finals and the bottom teams playing out for lower positions in the next round. Every match is crucial, as World Series points are up for grabs.
The final tournament points are determined on overall log position (for a specific tournament), and at the end of all the tournaments across the globe, those points are added up to determine the overall World Series winner and subsequent placings.
