Your News Bumper 7's event in Macclesfield

The biggest event of its kind ever staged in the North gets underway at Macclesfield RUFC on Friday (July 10) with the launch of the inaugural Manchester 7s.

The three-day programme includes six different sevens tournaments, with the Legends Cup, which gives some of the more senior celebrities a chance to test their fitness, getting proceedings underway on Friday evening from 6.15pm.

Main feature will be the International Invitation Cup, which raises the competitive bar on Saturday from 1pm, when a 6,000 first prize will ensure that elite teams have plenty of incentive.

Lining up in the elite competition will be:

Group A - Macclesfield RUFC, Kooga Wailers, Les Bleus France, Inside Runners; Group B - Akuma Scorpions, Marauders, SLB Rugby (Portugal), Elite ID; Group C - Onfire 7s, Samurai International, Sedgley Tigers, Koru Kamikaze; Group D - West Country Cavaliers, Sale Sharks, British Army, Mighty Minnows.

Behind that list of names lies a wealth of international rugby sevens talent that will guarantee some exceptional competition over the two days of that event.

Not that the competitors involved in the four other sections, which begin at 10am on Saturday, will be lacking in motivation. They will be battling their way through a non-stop programme with a place in the finals on Sunday afternoon their target.

Finals are scheduled for 5pm on Sunday, but before then, visitors will have a wide range of attractions to occupy them, with the back-up activities combining to provide an extraordinary package.

For patrons keen to savour every moment, there will be camping facilities to ensure a major party occasion, with a host of attractions to guarantee that every minute spent at the event is a fun-packed experience.

There will also be a major charity component to proceedings, support two great rugby associated charities - Wooden Spoon and SOS Kit Aid - both set to benefit from the event.

With a three-day ticket priced at 10, the first Manchester 7s is set to be a Bthere event in every sense of the term.
