Today, a group draw will be held for the upcoming Commonwealth Games Rugby Sevens. Longines is the official timekeeper of the Commonwealth Games and the rugby match will be held at the Robina Stadium on the Gold Coast in Australia.
Juan-Carlos Capelli, Vice President and International Marketing Director of Longines, and Australian and International Rugby Sevens players attended this exciting event. The men’s and women’s sevens draw uses a Longines watch case. In the watch box, a Comcast V.H.P. Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games watch is displayed. It is a special edition Comcast V.H.P. watch in tribute to the Commonwealth Games. The watch box also displays the names of the countries participating in the seven-handed rugby.
As a sponsor of the Sevens Rugby, Longines is looking forward to this exciting event with the participation of the world’s best teams. In addition, this is also the first time the Commonwealth Games will host a women’s rugby match. The event will also be held at the Robina Stadium from April 13th to 15th, 2018.
