World Rugby today announced a new-look men's and women's HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series which include at least six combined events, as the women's series increases to eight rounds for the first time in its history over the next four-year cycle.
Nine of the 10 existing men's tournaments - Vancouver, Dubai, Cape Town, Hamilton (New Zealand), Sydney, Hong Kong, Singapore, London and Paris - are set with the usa location (previously Las Vegas) to be confirmed at a later date.
In 2020 teams will not only be competing in the world series but also the Olympic Games in Tokyo. The outlier is the US, with reports circulating that United World Sports has been considering moving the U.S. 7s from Las Vegas, this announcement adds a bit of fuel to that fire. "This further reinforces World Rugby's confidence in Singapore to host world-class events", Oon added.
"Equality between our female and male players is something that Rugby Australia has strived for since we made the HSBC Sydney 7s a combined tournament and it's fantastic for the global game that there will be more joint tournaments across the Series next season".
Hamilton, the newest venue on the men's series having hosted its inaugural event in 2018, becomes a new combined event for both men's and women's teams.
Dubai and Sydney were the only cities to host both men and women this term.

Nine existing men's world series destinations - Dubai, Cape Town, Hamilton, Sydney, Vancouver, Hong Kong, Singapore, London and Paris - are set to feature again as part of the next four-year cycle, with the host location in the United States of America to be confirmed at a later stage in the season.
In the women's series the USA Women's Sevens will be hosted in Glendale, Colorado, with Langford, British Columbia, also being held as a standalone event in Canada as part of an expanded eight-round women's series.
This means that while Hong Kong will host a combined series round, Singapore will continue as a men's standalone round after the Southeast Asian nation earned the venue rights for the series during its expansion in 2015.
"With more rounds means that we can create more professional opportunities for elite players and I look forward to seeing a robust Aon University Sevens Series this year as the competition for spots from old and new players heats up", Women's Sevens Head Coach, John Manenti said.
Chad Hooker, Operations Director for the Council's H3 division - responsible for management of FMG Stadium Waikato - says sharing the tournament with Fiji reflects the energy and passion the Pacific Island nation brings to sevens rugby.
