From 24 to 30 July 2024
Jeux Olympiques de Paris 2024 | épreuves de rugby à sept

The rugby sevens matches for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games will take place at the Stade de France from 24 to 30 July.

Rugby's history with the Olympic Games spans several periods. The first, around the time of the renovation of the Olympic Games, was when rugby was played as a fifteen-a-side game, followed more recently by a seven-a-side version. In 1900, 1908, 1920 and 1924, a men's 15-a-side tournament featured on the Olympic programme, with victory going successively to the French team, Australasia (a team combining Australia and New Zealand), and then the United States twice.

Since the Rio Games in 2016, rugby has made a comeback on the Olympic stage, this time with seven players on the field. At the last Olympic Games in Tokyo in 2021, victory went to New Zealand in the women's tournament and Fiji in the men's tournament.

With seven players on the field and matches lasting just 14 minutes (two halves of 7 minutes each),rugby sevens is fast-paced and intense. 

In 2024, 24 teams will travel to Paris for the Olympic Games: twelve men's teams and twelve women's teams. The rugby event will take place over two periods of three days: three days for the men's tournament and three days for the women's tournament. 

On the first day, there will be two pool matches, followed by one pool match and the quarter-finals on the second day, then the classification matches, semi-finals and final on the third day.
