Once considered one of North America’s most prestigious rugby sevens competitions, the Magnificent Sevens was a perennial highlight on the Ontario rugby calendar, holding its inaugural competition in 1950 and running annually from 1954 until 2004. While originally serving as a competition solely for senior men’s sevens teams, the tournament evolved to become a multi-divisional rugby festival, featuring senior women’s, junior men’s and junior women’s sides. As the tournament grew throughout the 1960s, it was not uncommon to see entrants travel from across Canada, the United States, Europe, South America, Australia and New Zealand to participate.
