Ultimate Rugby Sevens has long considered itself 'For Everything 7s' working for the development of the game of rugby 7s at all levels in every corner of the globe. With interests in media, operations, commercial development, broadcast, player development and tournament initiatives UR7s continues to look to drive the game forward from all angles before Olympic induction in 2016
UR7s.com is the global online home ‘for everything 7s’, brought to you by Ultimate Rugby Sevens.
The multimedia portal, launched in early 2009, is a promotional platform for every level of tournament and team all over the world and the most comprehensive destination for rugby sevens news, information, videos, photos, opinion and banter. UR7s.com Verizon 2 was launched on October 8th 2013, once again putting the media portal at the forefront of technology not just in rugby 7s but in all forms of sports online media.
Rugby sevens is one of the world’s fastest growing sports. While it has been around for over 120 years and is already played in over 100 countries, right now is the most exciting time in its history. In October 2009, the IOC voted for rugby sevens to become an Olympic sport and make its debut at the Rio Games in 2016. On the back of this decision sevens has already seen unprecedented interest and profile. These are exciting times for everyone involved at every level of the game.
The UR7s.com platform is free for tournaments, teams, players and fans to use, leverage and enjoy. Tournaments and teams can do a huge amount through their UR7s.com profiles to not only proactively promote themselves, but by doing so collectively promote the entire sport. For help with getting the most out of your tournament or team profiles, check out the guidelines for tournaments.
All we ask for in return is your help in spreading the word. The more exposure you give us, then the more exposure we can give you – the more people who come to UR7s.com from all over the world, then the more everyone involved in the sport can benefit. In short, the more exposure we can give each other, the more our sport can grow and prosper.
You can help spread the word by:
- linking to your UR7s.com profile from your website, using one of our banners
- placing a UR7s banner or logo in your game-day programme, flyers and posters
- make our Facebook fanpage a favourite on your own fanpage
