HSBC London Sevens cancelled

The RFU can confirm the cancellation of HSBC London Sevens as a result of the global COVID-19 pandemic.

Originally scheduled to take place at Twickenham Stadium on 23/24 May 2020, the event was provisionally postponed by World Rugby until September but has now been cancelled, along with the remaining rounds of the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series 2020.

The 2019/20 women's Sevens Series tournament in Langford and the combined Sevens Series in Paris have also been cancelled as well as Hong Kong and Singapore Sevens.

The early conclusion of the season means England men finish fifth and England women finish eighth due to the standings after the rounds that were successfully completed prior to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The HSBC World Rugby Challenger Series men's and women's final events will also not take place in 2020.

These decisions follow detailed and constructive dialogue by World Rugby with the host and participating unions, and have been taken with the health and wellbeing of the rugby community and the wider public as top priority, and in line with the relevant national government and public health authority advice.

Further information on the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series 2021 will follow in due course.
