Some News on Atlanta 7s

It's perfect rugby weather here in Las Vegas (am here for work all week so sadly don't get to enjoy much of the outdoors. Thankfully my hotel has a great 24 hour gym with barbells, plates and medicine balls!). Between 12 hour work days full of marketing, sales and menu tastings, getting adequate sleep, and hitting said gym there isn't much time to post for Stars 7s. Here's a quick email from from USA Rugby regarding the upcoming iRB women's tournament in Atlanta:

BOULDER, Colo. – USA Rugby announced Tuesday details for a new ticket promotion to support women's rugby and Atlanta 7s, the second leg of the 2013-14 IRB Women’s Sevens World Series.
Two-day tickets for the event at Fifth Third Bank Stadium at Kennesaw State University will be sold for just $20 through Feb. 11 as part of the promotion, which will see one domestic club team receive a set of customized jerseys from Rugby Athletic.

“We want to stimulate the community and continue to grow the game of women’s rugby with our largest women’s event of the year,” USA Rugby Chief Commercial Officer Jon Persch said. “It is also important Atlanta 7s leaves a lasting sporting legacy for girls and women everywhere.”

To be entered to win, tickets must be purchased from USA Rugby Group Sales Coordinator Nick D’Adamio. Buyers will be asked which club he or she supports, and the club with the most tickets attributed to it will win. The club with the second-largest number of tickets purchased will receive a set of 25 training balls, 10 match balls and five (5) ruck shields courtesy of Gilbert Rugby and World Rugby Shop.
For those not planning to attend the event, tickets purchased can be donated to various Metro Atlanta youth organizations, which will give tickets to kids to attend Atlanta 7s for free.

“Atlanta 7s is an opportunity for America’s youth—particularly girls and young women—to see some of the best professional female athletes and future Olympians at the top of their game,” Persch said. “With the recent launch of Try On Rugby and the favorable results of our women’s national teams at all levels, women’s rugby is on the rise and we hope to encourage continued growth with this promotion.”

The Women’s Eagles Sevens are coming off of a third-place finish at the 2013 IRB Rugby World Cup Sevens and currently sit in seventh in the Series standings following Emirates Dubai Rugby Sevens. The Eagles finished second in the 2012 event in Houston, Texas, with a loss to England in the Cup Final.
