What: Limerick World Club Sevens
When: August 9 – 10
Where: Thomond Park

Seven players on twelve teams from five continents all at one venue, it can only mean one thing right?

The World Club Sevens Series is taking place this weekend and if you’re looking for some fun and entertainment then Limerick is without a doubt the only place to be.




Thomond Park will play host to some of the biggest names in club and provincial rugby from around the world with the kick-off of the World Club Sevens two day festival.

Teams taking part in the festival include Western Province, Vancouver, Auckland, Saracens, Stade Français, New South Wales Waratahs, South Africa’s Blue Bulls and our own Munster Rugby!

This is the first time an event of this kind has taken place in Ireland and Limerick is set to be packed with rugby fans from all corners of the globe.

The Stadium will be open from 10.30am daily. The party will then kick off with matches commencing on both days at 11.30am. The games are set to run until 18.45 on Saturday and until 17.30 on Sunday.

Adult tickets are priced from €15 per day or €20 for the weekend while children’s tickets stand at €5 per day or €10 for the weekend.

Tickets for the World Club Sevens Series are available from Ticketmaster and are also available on the day at the stadium as well as from usual outlets.
