A global audience will have all eyes on Twickenham this weekend for the inaugural World Club 7s as Gloucester Rugby take to the field as part of a truly international line up.
After an enthralling night at Bath’s Recreation Ground last Friday which saw Gloucester leave it late to lift the national title to qualify, the Cherry and Whites have been pitted in a group against DHL Western Province, VVA Moscow Region and New York.
Gloucester’s new main sponsor, ADEY Professional Heating Solutions, is looking forward to seeing the exciting, young side run out at the home of rugby. With 7s set to make a return to the Olympic programme in Rio 2016, enthusiasm and interest is building for the shorter form of the game.
Haimish Mead, Marketing Director at ADEY, comments: ‘To be associated with the first World Club 7s tournament is incredibly exciting for us, more so because Gloucester qualify as the English club champions. The competition is made up of some real Northern and Southern hemisphere heavyweights which is sure to make for an exciting two days of rugby.
‘With BT Sport broadcasting games on both days and a global television audience, it’s a great occasion for ADEY and one which we’re really looking forward to. Twickenham is obviously steeped in rugby history and it will be a proud moment to watch the team take on opponents from around the world in this new tournament.'
