Two days of rugby heaven, a whole week of fun

Launching in February 2017, the Brisbane Global Rugby Tens will see the star players of all ten Australian and New Zealand clubs and four elite invitational teams from across the world (in 2017 the event will feature Toulon, the Blue Bulls, Samoa and the Panasonic Wild Knights), compete over two days in a ten- players-per-side, ten-minutes per-half, knockout tournament.

Held annually at Suncorp Stadium, Brisbane in February, the Brisbane Global Rugby Tens sees global rugby’s best clubs compete to claim $1.6 Million prize money and the title of inaugural Brisbane Global Tens champion.

Combining the space and speed of Sevens with the trademark physicality, athleticism and tactical element of traditional fifteen-a-side rugby, the Tens format showcases the game at its dynamic best, re-engaging core fans and introducing the game to new audiences via a compelling and easily accessible format.

Representing the ultimate in sports entertainment, with compelling on-field action further supplemented by a program of innovative entertainment initiatives in the days leading up to the event, the Brisbane Global Rugby Tens is a truly immersive event experience that no rugby fan should miss.

What they’re saying

The inaugural Brisbane Global Tens will set the stage for an incredible sporting event this February. The world’s elite rugby players will clash in a series of games that will ensure Brisbane becomes the new international home of rugby. Whether you are a local resident or a visitor, I encourage you to come along and show your colours for the world’s finest rugby teams as they face off in one of Australia’s favourite sporting arenas, Suncorp Stadium. Brisbane always offers our visitors the warmest welcome and I hope you enjoy our beautiful and vibrant New World City.

Graham Quirk
Lord Mayor of Brisbane


“We love fast footy, and it’s certainly been a trait teams are developing and working on right across the competition. For us, it’s going to be a great way to hit the 2017 season running, in a great festival type format that we know our team is absolutely going to love! We have lots of fans in Queensland and we can’t wait to get there and play in front of them and our travelling kiwi supporters with this awesome event”.


Ben Smith, Highlanders captain


You could argue that this will be the biggest gathering of world class rugby players in one city in the history of the game. To gather all these teams together in one place is a remarkable achievement. I’m really looking forward to seeing how our boys stack up against the likes of Toulon.
