The J.P. Morgan Asset Management Premiership Rugby 7s Cup is coming to Leicester Tigers this month and we want teams of under-14s to take part.

The cup is a 7s rugby festival for under-14s teams at grassroots clubs, now into its second year and taking place at the 12 Premiership Rugby clubs.

The festival gives valuable experience of the 7s format to youngsters, helping in their rugby development.

The winning team from each festival will be invited to attend next summer’s J.P. Morgan Asset Management Premiership Rugby 7s Series Final, a prestigious tournament in which the Premiership Rugby clubs compete.

Our local 7s Cup event will be held at Oval Park, the Tigers training ground, with the finals on the Welford Road pitch after the pre-season fixture between Leicester Tigers and Nottingham on Saturday, August 25.

For more information please contact the Tigers community department by emailing [email protected]

Wayne Morris, head of community at Premiership Rugby, said: "The J.P. Morgan Asset Management Premiership Rugby 7s Cup is a fantastic opportunity for youngsters to gain valuable experience of the 7s game and have fun.

“Rugby 7s is growing in popularity year on year and will be featured as an Olympic sport for the first time in 2016."

Roger Thompson, head of UK at J.P. Morgan Asset Management, reinforced how important the tournament is to the future of Rugby 7s, saying: "We are excited to be involved with the 7s Cup and hope to see some future Olympic 7s players emerging."
