The Rugby World Cup Sevens is the most prolific international rugby sevens competition in the world, awarding the winner of the event the Melrose Cup, named after the Scottish town where the first sevens game was played. It takes place every four years and includes both men's and women's tournaments. The competition began in 1993 with a men's tournament before a women's tournament was added in 2009. Upon the announcement that sevens would be added to the Olympics in 2016, World Rugby announced they would integrate the tournament's schedule with the Olympics', having them two years apart much like the FIFA World Cup in soccer.
For the first time in the tournament's history, the Rugby World Cup Sevens will be played in the United States, at AT&T Park in San Francisco, California, from July 20-22. New Zealand returns as the defending champion of both the men's and women's events. On the men's side, New Zealand is tied with Fiji for the most Cup titles with two, while the New Zealand women have made it to the final in both women's tourneys played. Australia won the first.
