The Fiji national men’s and women’s teams will be part of the Dubai 7s that will run from November 26th to the 27th.

Spain will host a Series for the first time with combined men’s and women’s events from January 21st to the 23rd and January 28th to the 30th respectively.
This is to replace traditional Series hosts Sydney, Australia, and Hamilton, New Zealand, who were unable to host in 2022 due to the COVID-19 pandemic in their region.

There are also changes with the competing teams.
Japan join the men’s Series as a core team following their promotion as HSBC World Rugby Sevens Challenger Series champions in 2020.
