Delivering rugby to the world

The HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series annual championship showcases the world’s top rugby teams in a dynamic, fast-moving format. Instead of 15 players per team playing 40 minutes per half, Rugby 7s features two teams of just seven players going full throttle for a brief seven minutes per half. With all the thrills of world-class rugby condensed into this supercharged format, it’s no wonder the HSBC Sevens Series has rapidly become one of international rugby’s must-see events.

While the World Cup features 20 national teams playing 48 matches over 6 weeks, the HSBC Sevens Series has 16 men’s and 12 women’s teams crossing the globe for a total of 18 tournaments over the course of a single season. Both events pose world-class logistics challenges – and both rely on DHL as Official Logistics Partner to deliver with the kind of speed, skill and good hands that amaze on the pitch.

DHL’s involvement in these top-flight events builds on decades of supporting rugby through partnerships at a club and country level across the globe. Ireland Rugby Football Union, Rugby Canada, Harlequins in England and the DHL Stormers in South Africa are among the many partners, large and small, carrying our colors. We’re in the game because we love the game! And at the HSBC Sevens Series, we’re proud to sponsor the DHL Impact Player Award, which recognizes the top-performing players for each tournament and each season.
