The Youth Sports Festival
For the third year running, the Sevens Stadium is hosting the Youth Sport Festival, bringing together young rugby, cricket and netball players to determine the top teams who will play in the finals at the Emirates Dubai 7s in December.
With the first tournament hosted on October 13th and the next round on October 21st, the Festival offers aspiring athletes the opportunity to hone their skills in their chosen sport and celebrate their love of the games, to the backdrop of an internationally renowned stadium. Since the first iteration in 2021, over 1,400 children from across the UAE have participated in the multi-sport competition.
For the first time, the United Arab Emirates Rugby Federation (UAERF) introduced Under 16 Girls rugby, both contact and tackle, creating more opportunities for young women to play competitively and taking the total tournament up to 384 players and 32 teams.
The netball tournament will see 240 players split into 24 teams and three age groups: Under 11, Under 13 and Under 15 while the cricket tournament compromises 12 teams and 144 players aged Under 13 and Under 15.
Women’s XV Tournament
With the tournament underway until October 28th, the Sevens Stadium is hosting the international Women’s XV3 Tournament, featuring teams from Colombia, Fiji, Ireland, Kazakhstan, Kenya and Spain as they battle it out on their journey to the top.
A not-to-be-missed tournament for rugby lovers, the tournament will see the Group winner promoted to group 2, while the fate of the bottom team will be decided by a play-off with the next best side, according to the World Rugby Women’s Rankings.
