With Rugby Sevens being played for the first time at the 2016 Olympic Games Rio, Rugby tickets will be in huge demand. The older, 15-a-side version of rugby was last played at the 1924 Games but this fast and free-scoring form of the sport has brought rugby to a global audience. Sevens Rugby has become a crowd favourite, wherever it's been played, and at Rio 2016 Rugby tickets look like being some of the most sought-after around.
The traditional powerhouses of rugby are New Zealand, Australia, England and South Africa but Pacific Island nations have enjoyed great success in Sevens. Even a tiny nation like the Cook Islands can compete with the best, so no match is a foregone conclusion. If you're planning in visiting this Olympic Games then Rugby tickets may be hard to find – so make sure you move as fast as the athletes down on the pitch!
