While I am typing this, most of the teams who are part of the IRB Sevens World Series are en-route to what was once the world’s capital of gambling. While that mantle has been taken over by the Chinese Special Administrative Area (SAR) of Macau, the Americans have pulled out all the stops to prepare their city for the onslaught of Sevens Rugby fans.
For the past couple of weeks, I have been getting a steady stream of e-mails in my inbox announcing yet another sponsor for the first-ever Sevens tournament in Vegas.
Yesterday the organisers announced that Bridgestone has been secured as the ‘Presenting Sponsor’ for the tournament, while ESPN360 will provide exclusive online coverage on both days.
If you’re the betting kind, then you can visit the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino as they are the only sportsbook accepting wagers on the USA Sevens.
Seems Vegas is in for a hellavu weekend!
