2012 Safaricom Sevens to be held at Nyayo

The Kenya Rugby Union chair Mwangi Muthee unveiled the 2012 Safaricom 7’s that will take place from 21st to 23rd September at the Nyayo National Stadium on Monday.
Speaking at the RFUEA grounds Muthee rekindled the quest of having the Safaricom 7’s listed on the HSBC World Seven Series. In its 17th successive year, the tournament has continued to display terrific growth and he believes it is high time we hosted the world circuit in Nairobi.
“Our ultimate goal is to get admission into the IRB series while at the same time ensuring that our fans have a great experience,” he said.   
Safaricom’s corporate affairs Director Nzioka Waita also supported the move saying that it would boost Kenya’s tourism earnings and called on the government to put weight on the incorporation of the tournament into the IRB circuit.
The Kenya Rugby Sevens team will be chosen immediately after the tournament.
