Olympics – Women’s Rugby Schedule & Results

2016 Women's Rugby at the OlympicsWomen’s players from France and Spain will have the honor of becoming the first rugby Olympians since 1924 when they kick off the highly anticipated rugby sevens event in Rio 2016 on Saturday 6 August. Over the subsequent three days, 12 teams will battle it out for gold on the biggest sporting stage of all as rugby sevens makes its debut in the Olympic Games.

The 12 sides are split into three pools of four with those pool matches taking place over the first day and a half. The top two teams from each pool, plus the two best third-placed sides, will progress to the last eight. Those quarter-finals take place on the second session of day two while the resultant semi-finals will happen in the first session of the third day along with matches to decide lower placings. As excitement builds towards the end, the fifth to eighth-place matches, the bronze medal match and then the final will light up the Games on the evening of the third day.


We know that NBC and the NBC Universal family of networks will be broadcasting, in addition to being streamed live on NBCOlympics.com and NBC Sports Live Extra. Still searching for International coverage details.
