The Stade Louis II will host the Rugby Sevens Olympic Qualification Tournament for the Paris 2024 Games from June 21 to 23. 24 national teams, both men’s and women’s, from around the world will compete to secure the coveted spot. This has become almost a tradition for Monaco. Since rugby became an Olympic sport in 2016, the Principality has once again hosted the tournament, providing a last chance for non-qualified countries to participate in the Paris 2024 Olympic Games. 12 men’s teams and 12 women’s teams are involved in this significant event this year.

Only the winners of the men’s and women’s tournaments will secure their ticket to the Paris 2024 Olympic Games. Needless to say, every team will fiercely defend their chances on the pitch of Stade Louis II. At the end of the event, the Olympic pools will be unveiled during a press conference in the Salon Honneur, attended by the two captains of the qualified teams, World Rugby, and a representative from Paris 2024.

Online ticketing is open

Since May 27, online ticketing has been open for the three days of competition. Reservations are available on www.monaco-rugby.com. The Monegasque Rugby Federation, the organizer of this event, is counting on the exceptional success of the 2023 Rugby World Cup in France to attract the largest number of spectators to Stade Louis II from June 21 to 23.
