Tournament details

IRB Women's Sevens World Series (2013/2014) is the second edition of the IRB Women's Sevens World Series, organized by the IRB annual series of tournaments for women's national teams in the Rugby Sevens.

In August 2013 the IRB announced that the season will consist of six tournaments - in Dubai, Atlanta, São Paulo, Guangzhou and Amsterdam - played from November 2013 to May 2014 (a sixth tournament will be added in due course). The number of teams in each of the events set at twelve, nine of which participates in all competitions of the season, while others might be identified by elimination or rankings of the six regions reporting to the IRB .[1]

The competitionEdit

As in the case of the men's counterpart, the series winner will be the team that collects the most points throughout the season, based on individual tournament finishes.

The number of "core teams" that participate in all series events will increase to nine for the 2013–14 series, up from six in the inaugural series. The eight quarterfinalists in the 2013 Rugby World Cup Sevens were granted core team status for 2013–14:[2]

In addition, the IRB has announced that Flag of Brazil.png Brazil will be an invited core team for at least the 2013–14 series in an initiative to jump-start women's rugby development in the country, as Brazil is hosting the 2016 Summer Olympics.[2]

The remaining participants in each tournament will be determined through regional qualifying.

Points scheduleEdit

The season championship will be determined by points earned in each tournament. The scoring system, similar to that used in the men's IRB Sevens, was announced shortly before the season kicked off.
