United World Sports, the owner and operator of the largest annual rugby events in the United States, created the world-class international rugby competition, the SiliconValley 7’s in November 2017. The event brought some of the world’s great participants in the Olympic sport of Rugby Sevens to the Bay Area for this special event.
Among the 12 teams that competed in this debut tournament were the men’s sevens squads from Tonga, Samoa and Fiji, a trio of Pacific Island national teams competing in the same tournament for the first time since the 2007 USA Sevens. Also featured were the men’s sevens squad from Ireland, the first time that the squad will ever compete in the United States. Joining them are teams from the United States, Canada, Australia, England, Chile, New Zealand, Japan and China, coming together at the SiliconValley7s as they began preparations for 2018 international rugby sevens season.
In addition to being a tremendous success, United World Sports produced the entire world-feed covering more than 16 hours of live programming.
