2017 Oktoberfest Sevens

Rugby and Germany are usually not things one associates with each other. But the sport has a long tradition in Germany dating back to the 1870s; and is practised by 15,000 active players around the country. The city of Munich boasts two second Bundesliga rugby clubs as well as an annual amateur sevens tournament during the Oktoberfest; which has been held since 1978.

This year’s inaugural edition of the pro-tournament will be the first one in the city’s iconic Olympic stadium; and will feature some of the world’s best national sides in sevens. Two days of seven-a-side rugby-action on the pitch and a party atmosphere on the stands of the ground will deliver the most spectacular rugby event Germany has ever seen.

Expect Fans from around the world cheering on their respective teams during tournament as well as the Oktoberfest itself; which is only a fifteen minute subway ride away. Twelve teams will be taking part in the pro tournament; however there will also be an opportunity for amateur teams to participate. The pitches for the semi-pro and social competitions are only a short walk away from the main stadium; access to which will be inclusive in the participation fee.

The Oktoberfest nowadays is famous as the biggest beer fest on the planet, drawing an annual six million visitors. The festival has its roots in the celebrations of the wedding of Bavaria’s crown prince Ludwig with Princess Therese in 1810. Over the decades Munich’s five biggest breweries started to use the annual celebrations on the Oktoberfest-grounds to showcase their special Oktoberfest-brews in gigantic beer tents holding up to 10.000 visitors each.

Nowadays about eight million beers are served in massive one litre glasses dubbed Maß or Stein over the 16 to 18 days of the Oktoberfest. This year’s edition will start on September 16th this year; putting the Oktoberfest 7s right in the middle of the celebrations. The Oktoberfest’s unique cheerful atmosphere perfectly compliments the tradition of having a good time at the sevens. As on the Oktoberfest itself, the tournament-organisers very much encourage fancy dresses in the party stand of the ground.
