BOULDER, Colo. – The sixth annual USA Women’s International 7s Invitational is set to kickoff in Las Vegas on Friday February 10 and a champion will be crowned on Sunday February 12.
The USA Women’s National Sevens team will play host to Japan, Canada, The Netherlands, France, and Brazil along with one developmental team from Canada and one from the USA.
The eight teams are divided into two pools.  Pool A consists of USA, France, Japan, and the Maple Leafs, the Canadian developmental side.  Pool B will see Canada, The Netherlands, Brazil, and Stars & Stripes, the USA developmental team square off on the first day of the tournament.
Day one will see pool opponents go toe-to-toe and days two and three will see the competition heat up as the Plate and Cup competitions get underway.
Most of the matches will be held at the Star Nursery Fields, just outside UNLV’s Sam Boyd Stadium.  The Cup semifinals, consolation, and final will all be played in Sam Boyd Stadium.
The women’s tournament will be webcast live on usarugby.org and USA Rugby’s Facebook Fan page.  Results will be also posted in real time on USA Rugby’s website.
