Skilled Park on the Gold Coast is set to light up in mid-October when Gold Coast Sevens – Fever Pitch returns to one of Australia’s most vibrant cities.
After making its debut on a Friday and Saturday in November last year Australian Rugby Union today announced the two-day tournament will move to Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 October in 2012.
The tournament will also act as the opening round of the 2012/13 HSBC Sevens World Series.
ARU Managing Director and CEO, John O’Neill AO, said excitement was already starting to build for the second instalment of Gold Coast Sevens – Fever Pitch.
“Last year’s inaugural tournament provided a great platform for growth in the second year,” Mr O’Neill said.
“Since the final whistle blew last year we’ve had a number of people asking us when Gold Coast Sevens – Fever Pitch will be held in 2012.
After working closely with the iRB and Queensland Government, through Events Queensland, we can confirm the dates for the 2012 tournament will be Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 October.”
Information about on sale dates for tickets to Gold Coast Sevens – Fever Pitch 2012 will be announced in the coming weeks.
