The Punta del Este Sevens is an annual international rugby sevens tournament held in Uruguay, held at the resort of the same name in Maldonado Department.[1][2][3] It was formerly part of the IRB Sevens World Series for the inaugural 1999-2000 circuit.

Internationally, it is the highest profile Uruguayan rugby event,[4] and has attracted players of the calibre of Jonah Lomu in the past,[5][6] as well as teams from Fiji, Argentina, New Zealand and Samoa which are considered the top sevens nations.[7]
