From VISION To REALITY

We started with the right idea and the right people, now we are here.

1996

The Alaska Midnight Sun 7s

is an annual social-level competition series between states. This is where the nimblest and most savvy rugby players compete against each other to win the title in the Last Frontier.

2019

  • The tournament welcomed professional teams from Canada, California, Hawaii, St Louis, and New Zealand.

  • Alaska Midnight Sun 7s is sanctioned by USA Rugby.

  • Played on the same size field as traditional 15s rugby, 7s rugby is played with only seven players per team.

This year is set to be even bigger and better than the prior years, sporting a top-notch lineup and a more in-depth experience for the sponsors, players, and spectators! The tournament is held on one of the most exquisite and unique rugby pitches in the world: The Alaska Mountain Rugby Grounds.

 

With the help of numerous volunteers and other contributors, we strive to make each year more memorable than the last. With the growing popularity and population of Alaska, every festival is bigger than the one before.

"We inspire to be a dynamic sporting festival in Alaska. Our goal is to bridge the gap between Rugby and Alaska. We hope you are the missing link we have been looking for."

From Steven Tran, 2019 Festival Director
