Launching a New League for #YourCrowd
#YourCrowd is an initiative dedicated to the study of crowd behaviors and experiences, created and moderated by the strategy team at BaAM.
Exciting times are ahead for Premier Rugby Sevens - North America's FIRST professional Rugby Sevens League. The League has been created as a single entity model and will be the first of its kind as a combined men's and women's league.
PR7s' inaugural championship will take place on October 9 in Memphis, TN at AutoZone Park. It's gearing up to be an adrenaline fueled single-day tournament bringing all teams together to compete to become the first-ever champs.
But what does it take to debut a new North American league, you ask?
Learn more about the thinking behind the League and how it's planning to deliver an exhilarating fan experience, including:
- raising the profile of Rugby Sevens in North America
- choosing a host city
- growing player development from a grassroots level
- securing broadcast deals to provide more access to the sport
