“The recent women’s series opening round in Glendale, Colorado was a fantastic display of sevens action with the women’s competition already proving to be highly competitive.

World Rugby Chair Bill Beaumont said: “It’s an exciting season for rugby sevens as we enter another Olympic qualification year ahead of Tokyo 2020.

“We will be watching closely as the men’s teams not only get their season underway in Dubai but also compete to secure their ticket to Tokyo 2020.”

After Dubai 7s, the 15 core teams plus Zimbabwe will head to South Africa for Cape Town 7s.
