The Singapore Sevens is an annual rugby union sevens tournament contested by national teams.

It was first contested as part of the IRB World Sevens Series in 2002 and from 2004 to 2006.[1] The Standard Chartered Bank was the original title sponsor. It was effectively replaced in the IRB calendar by the Australian Sevens for the 2006-07 season.

The tournament returned as an official event within the Asian Sevens Series in 2013. Singapore then secured a four-year deal to host a leg of the Sevens World Series starting from the 2015–16 season.[2][3]
