Onside, in conjunction with the Federation, developed and implemented the annual UAE Rugby-owned Eden Park Sevens Series which is held during the month of November, as an integral lead-in for UAE Rugby’s Clubs ahead of the Emirates Airline Dubai Rugby 7’s.

A staple in the 7’s is the Gulf Division which includes Men’s, Women’s U19’s – Boys and Girls categories, with players from across the GCC participating.

At a time of the year that sees the rugby community focus heavily on the 7’s format and with the majority of UAE-based Rugby Clubs participating in the Dubai Rugby 7’s Gulf Division, the UAE Rugby Federation were acutely cognisant of the Federation’s requirement and ability to provide the opportunity for our UAE-based clubs to adequately prepare.

Also, as headline sponsor, the tournament provides Eden Park with a platform to engage with the Rugby Community and assist with their goal to develop rugby, at all levels, across the GCC and the UAE.
