Saturday and Sunday of decisions for Brazilian men’s rugby sevens. The Tupis will compete in the Costa Rica Sevens, a tournament designated by Sudamerica Rugby, the South American confederation, as a qualifier for both the Pan American Games in Santiago 2023 and the World Rugby Sevens Challenger (the second division of the World Tour).

The dispute system will split the objectives in two. First, on Saturday, Brazil, Paraguay, Venezuela and Costa Rica will be in the same group and will face each other for a place in the Pan, destined for the first place in the group. In the other bracket are Argentina, Uruguay and Chile, but the three teams have already qualified for the Pan, through the results obtained at the South American Games (Odesur) last month.

Sunday will be the tournament’s final knockout, with the groups crossing each other. Chile, Brazil, Paraguay, Venezuela and Costa Rica will play for two places in the World Rugby Sevens Challenger. Argentina and Uruguay are already in the first world division. Whoever finishes in first place in Brazil’s group on Saturday already has a place in the semifinals, while the other teams will face each other in the quarterfinals.

Lucas “Tanque” Duque, coach of the Tupis, commented: “Our main game will be against Paraguay and expectations are the best. We have a young group, as sevens has the proposal to guarantee more international experience for revelation athletes”.


The recent record between Brazilians and Paraguayans in men’s rugby sevens favors Brazil. The Tupis won the last eight duels in official tournaments, the last one by 12 to 7 in October for the South American Games. Against Venezuela and Costa Rica, Brazil defends historic invincibility.
