Closure of the Oktoberfest 7s GmbH

Dear Oktoberfest 7s fans,

The management of Oktoberfest 7s GmbH filed for insolvency at the end of December 2023. The reason for this step is the extensive renovation and closure of Munich's Olympic Stadium and the resulting negative forecast for the continuation of the invitational tournament in the Bavarian capital.

After the spectacular premiere in 2017 with the tournament winner Australia and the even more successful second edition in 2019, at the end of which South Africa triumphed, the prospects for the tournament were excellent. New investors were found, a cooperation agreement was signed with the world's leading Hong Kong Sevens and its Managing Director was recruited as an additional Managing Director of Oktoberfest 7s GmbH.

But then came the coronavirus pandemic, which led to major upheavals in global sevens rugby, meaning that the tournament could no longer be held in the years that followed. The upcoming construction work at the Olympic Stadium in Munich and the now reduced World Rugby Sevens calendar with only eight World Series tournaments do not allow for any planning security in the future, so the management has to take this step with a heavy heart.

We would like to thank you all for your great support over the past few years!
