The 18th edition of biggest sevens rugby tournament on this side of the Sahara, the Safaricom Sevens 2013 (formerly Safari Sevens), will be on the 20th to 22nd September. The tournament which attracts international teams is the culmination of the Safaricom sponsored rugby extravaganza dubbed the Safaricom Sevens Series which comprised the Kisumu Dala Sevens, Nairobi’s Kabeberi and Christie Sevens, Mombasa’s Driftwood and Nakuru Prinsloo.


This year, the venue has been moved to the Moi International Sports Complex Kasarani from Nyayo Stadium. Since this year’s venue is a bit out of the way, there will be free transport for advance ticket holders from Kencom to Kasarani and back to town at regular intervals courtesy of Safaricom.
