Continuing to play a role in world rugby, the Principality is set to host the final Olympic rugby qualification event ahead of Tokyo ‘2020’, which will actually be held this year after the pandemic postponed the Olympic games.

The Stade Louis II is expected to host up to 5,000 rugby fans on June 19 and 20, as they gather to watch 12 women’s teams and 10 men’s teams compete to secure the remaining few places in Tokyo.

Two women’s places are up for grabs, while only one men’s team will go through to the Olympic rugby sevens event at the Tokyo Stadium in Japan, which will take place from July 26 to 31, 2021.

The men’s tournament will involve Chile, France, Hong Kong, Ireland, Jamaica, Mexico, Samoa, Tonga, Uganda and Zimbabwe. Meanwhile, the women’s tournament will offer a larger selection of national teams including that of Argentina, Colombia, France, Hong Kong, Jamaica, Kazakhstan, Madagascar, Mexico, Papua New Guinea, Russia, Samoa and Tunisia.

From June 8, everyone is welcome to buy tickets directly in Monaco at the ticket offices at the Stade Louis II’s entrance. A day ticket will cost 10 euros per person, except for Monaco students, who can claim their tickets for just five euros.
