 Men’s 7s teams are ready to play in front a sold-out Cape Town Stadium this weekend.

Tickets for the third edition of the HSBC Cape Town Sevens were snapped up within two hours when they first went on sale back in July, prompting organisers to release additional seating to meet the huge demand for tickets.

More than 100,000 people are expected to witness Premier 7s rugby this weekend.

England are the defending champions of the South Africa 7s.

The quarterfinals will start at 11.04pm next Monday, semifinals at 3.34am next Monday while the final will be held at 6.44am next Monday.

Looking at the HSBC World Rugby 7s Series points table, South Africa is leading with 22 points, New Zealand is in second place with 19 points, England is in third place with 17 points while Fiji is in fourth place with 15 points.
