The HSBC New Zealand Sevens is brand new for the 2018 HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series.

Be part of the fun and exciting behind the scenes action by becoming a volunteer! 

Volunteering at the HSBC New Zealand Sevens 2018

The HSBC Sevens World Series consists of ten exciting tournaments held around the world, starting in Dubai in December 2017 and culminating in London in June 2018. Hamilton as the new host city promises a reflection on all the best moments of the Sevens, with a vibrant new spin for this fun, fast and furious festival of Sevens rugby. Sixteen teams will compete over the two consecutive days at FMG Stadium Waikato.

New Zealand Rugby has a desire to make the 2018 HSBC NZ Sevens the greatest New Zealand Sevens event ever. To achieve this desire, the tournament depends on the commitment of an army of volunteers made up of people just like you! Your expertise, energy and enthusiasm is needed!

Volunteer positions at the HSBC New Zealand Sevens 2018 cover a wide range of roles. We need a committed army of volunteers of around 140 people, that are enthusiastic, motivated and passionate, who want to have some fun and are willing to donate their time and energy to bring this fun, fast and furious event to life. These roles are not for the faint hearted – the two days of the tournament will be action packed and some roles will require additional time outside of the tournament days.
