Premier Rugby Sevens (PR7s) is the newest sports league in the USA. Memphis will host the The PR7s Inaugural Championship at AutoZone Park on Saturday, Oct. 9 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. CDT.
“For our inaugural event, we wanted a market that would appeal as an exciting destination for American rugby fans with a great venue and vibrant local rugby community,” said Owen Scannell, Founder and CEO of Premier Rugby Sevens. “With the downtown location of AutoZone Park steps away from the legendary Beale Street, The PR7s Inaugural Championship in Memphis will be an unbelievable festival experience worth traveling to see in person. We’re thrilled to have incredible partners at the City of Memphis, AutoZone Park, and our official community partners at Memphis Inner City Rugby.”
“This is a huge opportunity for Memphis to shine on a national and international stage by hosting Premier Rugby Sevens and their inaugural event,” said Memphis Mayor Jim Strickland. “It’s a unique chance for our residents in the Memphis Metro area to witness this landmark tournament live. And we look forward to welcoming fans and the PR7s’ athletes from across the country to our city.”
For fans unable to make it to Memphis to witness the event in person, the inaugural tournament will be available through FOX Sports. Live across FS2, the FOX Sports App and FOXSports.com, with the championship re-airing on FS1.
