Event Information and FAQs

Scotstoun Stadium Map

Fixtures

All 16 teams play three pool round matches on Saturday 9 May. Sunday’s fixtures times will be determined by Saturday’s results with teams playing their first knock-out fixtures in either the Cup or the Bowl. Scotland 7s play Portugal (1.04pm), Wales (4.10pm) and Fiji (7.21pm) on Saturday. See the Fixtures and Results page for all the Day One fixtures.

Fancy Dress

Fancy Dress is actively encouraged so the Emirates Airline Glasgow 7s has a theme each year. Last year it was the circus; the year before that film heroes. This year, it’s the Comic Book! So whether you come dressed as your favourite action comic book character (e.g. Spiderman or Captain America) or go for more of a home-grown classic (Dennis the Menace; Minni the Minx) you're guaranteed to have a blast!

To help you get dressed up in style we've teamed up with Morphsuits and all ticket purchasers will be emailed a code to get 20% off their colorful costumes!
