The Amsterdam Sevens has been a highlight of the rugby touring calendar since 1972 when the AAC Rugby Club organised the very first tournament. It has grown over the years to become one of the biggest international sevens tournaments attracting top teams from around the world. This globally renowned rugby competition has welcomed teams from as far afield as Hong Kong and Australia as well as the traditional European opposition, to compete in the two day competition played at the Dutch National Rugby Stadium. It goes without saying that the legendary Amsterdam nightlife is an integral part of the Amsterdam Sevens Rugby Tournament experience. Popular bars include Café Corso, Susies Saloon, Molly Malones and Dan Murphy’s are all locations where you're sure to find a pint of traditional Heineken beer.
