Sevens Rugby strategy aims for economic development
The Bay of Plenty Rugby Union and Bay of Connections have joined forces on a strategy to establish the region as the international home of Sevens rugby development.
The potential economic benefits for the region from Sevens Rugby are significant and the region has already secured the national tournament, which is to be held in Rotorua for the next two years after being hosted in Queenstown since 2003.
Bay of Plenty Rugby Union Chief Executive, Mike Rogers, says the profile of Sevens rugby has been raised to a new level internationally in the past five years, predominately due to the introduction of the game to the 2016 and 2020 Olympics.
