The match schedule for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic rugby sevens competition has been confirmed by Tokyo 2020 and World Rugby with 19 days to go until kick-off as excitement builds towards the sport’s second appearance at the games.
Ireland who are in Pool C will kick off their challenge against South Africa at 11am (Tokyo) on July 26th; USA are next up later in the day while the final pool game against Kenya is on July 27th before teams move into the playoff stages.
The Irish team dominated the final Olympic repechage on the 19-20 June in Paris, when they overcame all teams en route to a sensational clash with pre-competition favourites France. This is the first time that Ireland will field a rugby team in the games, with the Rugby Sevens event making its debut in 2016 at Rio.
The events will take place in the Tokyo Stadium, and will run from Monday 26 July until Wednesday 28 July 2021.
Ireland will wear brand new home and alternate kits designed by adidas at the games that are going down incredibly well online. Have a look below. Serious kits.
