ABOUT THE HOTTEST SEVENS
Beginning in 1989 as the Territory 7ís, the event has grown in popularity and size. The tournamentís profile has lifted with high profile teams from New Zealand, Fiji, Singapore, Hong Kong, Borneo, Japan, Kenya, South Africa and Australiaís elite teams having participated in the event.
In 2007 the tournament introduced a womenís competition. The standard of the womenís competition has grown enormously over the years to the extent that in 2016 there were current and former Wallaroos playing in various teams. In recognition of this increase in standard the prize money for the womenís major trophy, The Jabiru, will be raised in 2017 and announced later in the year.
With a total prize pool of $80,000, the Hottest Sevens In The World is the richest tournament in the southern hemisphere.
The support of the Northern Territory Government since 2009 has been pivotal, with support of $120,000 per year guaranteed until 2018. This investment has seen the profile of Sevens grow and in maintaining the lucrative prize purse, the tournament continues to attract high calibre interstate and international competition. The influx of visitors to Darwin for the event is a much need boost to the local economy during an off peak period.
Another coup for the sport was the announcement that in 2016 Rugby Sevens will make its debut at the Olympics. With the game continuing to go from strength to strength and entering an exciting new phase in its development, the Territory is proud to welcome all teams, both new and returning, to Darwin.
