The International Rugby Board and USA Rugby have awarded Houston a multi–year deal to host Round 2 of the IRB Women's Sevens World Series. Twelve international women's teams will compete at the event.
This historical two-day series, the second stop on a new Women's World Series Rugby Sevens global tour, the first of its kind for women, and an Olympic qualifier, will take place annually in Houston through 2015. Rugby Sevens will debut as one of the new Olympic sports at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games.
In conjunction with the tournament, the participating organizations aim to empower women through sports, education, and community outreach programs. The event has partnered with the Houston Area Women's Center and will donate $1 from each event ticket sold. In addition, players from the international teams will also participate in a variety of activities and community outreach programs during their time in Houston.
