Super Sevens Rugby announced its initial Summer Series player draft for the league's opening. The debut of this unique format of sevens (one match, four, 12-minute quarters, and teams comprised of men and women) will occur some time in the summer of 2019.
Basically, the plan for Super 7s inaugural season is to seed teams in six cities for a six-week season, followed by a playoff. The new league is confident it can find airings on a cable sports television network, providing innovative and exciting rugby content that will appeal to ruggers and a wider sports viewership.
The schedule for Season One will see the first match played on Sunday, July 27, and the last on Sunday, September 1.
