The world’s oldest and most renowned annual rugby sevens tournament – The Aberdeen Standard Investments Melrose Sevens – returns to Melrose for the 136th time on Saturday 13 April 2019.
The very first Rugby Sevens competition was played in Melrose back in 1883 and was founded by butcher’s apprentice, Ned Haig. The Aberdeen Standard Investments Melrose Sevens is recognised globally and attracts over 12,000 spectators every year.
Clubs from across Scotland will be competing against each other this year, alongside international teams from England, South Africa and USA, for their chance to win the Aberdeen Standard Investments Melrose Sevens Ladies Cup.
With an action-packed day on the pitch, The Aberdeen Standard Investments Melrose Sevens has become a major social event for both rugby fans and families.
Tickets for this family event, which are available from the website www.melrose7s.com, cost between £20 and £50 for adults, £10 for children under 15 and from £15 for senior citizens. A family ground ticket for a family of two adults and 2 under 16s costs £50.
