The USA Sevens has enjoyed yet another record year for attendance, as 75,761 fans took in the tournament at Sam Boyd Stadium over the course of three days. That sets the attendance record for a rugby event in the United States, beating 68,608 from the 2014 USA Sevens.

Friday saw 15,294 fans come through the turnstiles, Saturday 34,593 and Sunday 25,874. The event has broken its own attendance record each year since moving to Las Vegas in 2010.

The tournament also enjoyed more broadcast coverage than in the past, with four hours on NBC proper, another four going out via NBC Sports Network and eight-and-a-half more being carried by the Universal Sports Network.
