The NZI Sevens is one of Wellington’s most exciting annual events, bringing the city together for a classic Kiwi hoedown. Imagine a carnival, clashing with a crowd of friendly rugby supporters in a central Wellington fancy dress store, and emerging in some of the world’s most imaginative costumes. If there’s one party you want to be at in New Zealand, it’s got to be the NZI Sevens!
2011: Rugby Heaven
The NZI Sevens is part of the IRB Sevens World Series, and this will be Wellington’s eleventh year of hosting the most famous leg of the tournament. 2011 is set to be a thunderous year for New Zealand rugby, with the 2011 Rugby World Cup sweeping across New Zealand later that year, it means all eyes are on the world’s most southerly capital.
When is the NZI Sevens?
The dates for the NZI Sevens are now confirmed on 4-5 February 2011. Be on the constant lookout for tickets to the NZI Sevens, as they get snapped up quicker than a cold Speights on a steaming hot summers day.
