Africa’s premier rugby tournament, the Safari Sevens, is set to be held on November 17-19 at RFUEA grounds, Nairobi, the Kenya Rugby Union (KRU) has announced.

The tournament comes on the back of the Kenya national sevens team qualification to the 2024 Paris Olympics as well as a newly elected KRU board.

These recent developments set the stage for the three days of non-stop action and excitement that will keep rugby fans on the edge of their seats. 

KRU chairman Sasha Mutai said they are doing everything possible to ensure they stage a thrilling and successful tournament.

“We are proud to be back! The tournament will bring together top African teams, along with international powerhouses, for an unforgettable showdown that will make rugby history. We have tapped key strategic partners that will re-establish the tournament back to its glory days while helping us achieve our commitment to developing world class rugby in Kenya,” said Mutai.

The Safari Sevens is an annual rugby sevens tournament held in Nairobi, Kenya.

The Safari Sevens is open to international representative sides, professional and amateur clubs, invitational teams, university and school teams.
