The 2011 Gold Coast Sevens was the first edition of the tournament which was known as the Adelaide Sevens the last years and was part of the 2011-12 IRB Sevens World Series. It was held at Robina, Australia, the host stadium was the Robina Stadium.

Fiji won the tournament by defeating New Zealand in the Cup final 26–12.[1]

FormatEdit

The teams were divided into pools of four teams, who played a round-robin within the pool. Points were awarded in each pool on a different schedule from most rugby tournaments—3 for a win, 2 for a draw, 1 for a loss. The top two teams in each pool advanced to the Cup competition. The four quarterfinal losers dropped into the bracket for the Plate. The Bowl was contested by the third- and fourth-place finishers in each pool, with the losers in the Bowl quarterfinals dropping into the bracket for the Shield.

TeamsEdit

The participating teams were announced on 8 September.[2]

Pool stageEdit

The draw was made on 7 November.[3]
