About the Dubai Rugby Sevens 2019

The Sevens Stadium, Dubai
Owned by one of the most premium and prestigious Airlines in the world, the Emirates has drawn enormous attention towards the Annual Rugby Sevens, held at The Sevens Stadium, Dubai. With over 100,000 people passing through the gates of the event every year, the event has grown multiple-fold since its humble start. The previous editions of this event have seen various countries lift the trophy but New Zealand asserts their dominance over the Dubai Rugby Sevens with six trophies and four runner-up spots. The six-time champions are tied with South Africa but the latter failed to reach the finals as many times as the Kiwis.
