The St. Albert Rugby Football Club (SARFC) is proud to be the venue of the Edmonton International Sevens (EIS) festival and rugby 7’s tournament this September long weekend.
How do we register a team?

Why did the event move to St. Albert?
With some uncertainty about the availability of Ellerslie Rugby Park for September 3rd to 5th, EIS LTD was unable to organize the event there. SARFC offers the physical space for the event and camping options for both tents and trailers with the neighbouring Kinsmen Club. Since there are no residential neighbours, we can also have a bigger party with live outdoor music. There are also more parking options.
What happened to Rugbyfest?
Don’t worry! Rugbyfest is still alive and an integral part of the weekend. It will live on as the festival-side of the event. Rugbyfest is a party and it’s going to continue to be just that—THE party.
How will this impact St. Albert Rugby members?
This is a huge opportunity to showcase our facility and the club will benefit from this partnership with EIS LTD. There will be some volunteer efforts (e.g., bottle drive), but the event is being staffed by the organizers. Our grounds crew will ensure the fields are ready for rugby and clubhouse operations will continue with our staff, however there will be additional vendors on site. Festival social events are ticketed: more information at www.yegsevens.com
Can we bring pets?
No pets 🙁
We love them, but it’s not feasible with an event this size on our grounds.
What are the COVID-19 protocols?
Any provincial restrictions and Alberta Health Services guidelines will be adhered to. See www.yegsevens.com/covidresponse for more detail.
