The HSBC World Rugby Sevens series consists of 10 tournaments held around the world, in which national sevens teams compete for series points at each round.

An overall champion is crowned at the end of the season based on points accumulated throughout the 10 events, from the opening round in Dubai in December to the final round in Paris in June.

There are 15 ‘core’ teams who participate at each round of the series. The 16th team is an invitational team.
