Rugby 7s – also known as Rugby Sevens or Sevens – is one of the two rugby variants played all around the world. Named after the number of players, seven per team, it is played on a grass court.
The dimensions of the pitch are 94 to 100 meters long and 68 to 70 meters wide. The aim of the game is to drop the ball in the opposing try zone. A try scorin team receives 5 points as well as the opportunity to score 2 additional more points by kicking the ball through the goal posts.
Each game consists of two seven-minute halves. It is played as a tournament with several teams, so that the spectators can see each team several times a day.
Without volunteers, the Oktoberfest 7s could not be run because many helping hands are necessary during the tournament and the days before – from setting up Olympic Stadium to suppporting the teams.
