Rugby World Cup Sevens 2013 will be held in Moscow, Russia between 28-30 June. It will be the sixth RWC Sevens. The event will be held at Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow.


The men’s tournament in 2013 is made up of 24 teams and the women’s tournament comprises 16 teams, all in all about 800 sportsmen from 28 countries. The men will be competing for the Melrose Cup, and the women for the Women’s Rugby World Cup trophy.


The Russian team debuted in 2001 and took the 9th place. The women’s team took part first time only in 2009. That year the Russia’s team was ranked 11th.


The inaugural RWC Sevens was held in 1993 in Scotland, the home of Rugby Sevens. The first Rugby Sevens game was held in Melrose, a small town in Scotland from which the men’s trophy gets its name.
