C7 Questions

If you want to register for the tournament, you will need to send an email before the end of March to one of our Team-sector chiefs, whose Email adresses can be found in More/Our Organization on this website. Be careful, the participation in this tournament requires almost a professional level, since we invite teams from all around the world with some of the best players in the world. However, every application will be carefully considered.
The registration is free, and the Centrale 7 organization will provide teams and coaches with all the meals, osteopaths, medics, and other services during the entire tournament. For accomodation, teams can book rooms in a hotel located near to the campus, or sleep in students’ rooms that will have been reserved for them on campus. In summary, the only expenses are those of the travel and for the hotel if chosen as your accomodation place.
The teams come from all around the world : this year, we will host teams from the 5 continents ! Every year, we invite the best teams from the previous years, and we try to find new teams in order to improve little by little the level of our tournament. In 2017 for instance, we hosted Yamacia, a team in which 2 rugby 7 olympic champions play, that came all the way from Fiji, and won the men tournament. This tournament is the spot of a great rugby show but also the place where people from all around the world share their cultures with one another and are gathered around the wonderful rugby spirit.
Our engineering school moved to a new campus since it has merged with Supelec, another french engineering school. By the way, Ecole Centrale Paris doesn’t exist anymore and our school’s new name is CentraleSupélec. Unfortunately, the new rugby pitches on our new campus won’t be ready until next year, which is why Centrale Sevens will be held in Orsay, which is very close. Transports to the rugby field will be provided every day during the tournament.

You may have noticed that we organize those two events, but they are completely different.

Sev’Ent is a unique student / companies rugby sevens tournament. It takes place on an afternoon. It allows rugby players from French universities to meet our partners in a forum, discuss with them, extend their network and maybe find an internship. After lunch, the companies and the students participate in a sevens tournament to share the great values of rugby and forge on the pitch friendlier ties.

Centrale Sevens is our major event. It is a great semi-professionnal tournament, gathering high-level rugby 7 teams from all around the world. It is free of entrance for the public, and a lot of other activities are available on the side of the pitch.

All the teams will stay on the campus for the time needed.

There are two possibilities for the accommodation :  a room at the hotel Campanile or a student room in the residence for free. The games will be played on the rugby pitches at Orsay near the campus.

You will live among the students for two days with the atmosphere that this implies. You will have free access to the school bar and restaurant where dinner is served each evening. A party will be held the last night, after the closing ceremony.

 

During all the tournament two team rooms will be available, one on the side of the pitch and another one on the campus, so that you have the opportunity to take some rest and meet with the other players.
