The 2007 Adelaide Sevens, promoted as the International Rugby Sevens Adelaide 2007, was a rugby sevens tournament that was part of the IRB Sevens World Series in the 2006–07 season. It was the Australian Sevens leg of the series, held over the weekend of the 7th and 8th of April at the Adelaide Oval in South Australia.[1]

It was the first such tournament in Adelaide, and replaced the Singapore Sevens. The competition was won by Fiji who defeated Samoa 21-7 in the Cup final.[2]

The tournament was the fourth completed edition of the Australian Sevens, with the event returning after a three year absence following the 2003 Brisbane Sevens.[3]

Each team played the other teams in their pool once, with 3 points awarded for a win, 2 points for a draw, and 1 point for a loss (no points awarded for a forfeit).
