 31 Jan 2016 - 1:00

Doha: Eight teams will be seen in action in the first-ever Qatar Rugby 7’s League which takes off from February 6 at Aspire Zone, officials of Qatar Rugby Federation (QRF) informed yesterday.

The League, the premier competition of the country, will end on April 9, and is supported by the Qatar Olympic Committee (QOC) and sanctioned by Asian Rugby Football Union (ARFU).
The new initiative of QRF follows the success at the Dubai and the Qatar National Day Rugby Sevens.
The new annual competition will act as a bridge between senior domestic players and national level players and also aims to serve as an incentive for Doha clubs to further engage new players, supporters, volunteers and sponsors, officials of QRF said. The initiative has been brought about by the commitment of the Doha registered rugby clubs and Yousef  Al Kuwari, President of the QRF.
 “Rugby Union is entering a new era of opportunity, as the world focuses its attention on the admission of Rugby Sevens into the Rio 2016 Olympics. QRF aims to take advantage of this exciting period by supporting the growth of the game and providing Qatar players opportunities to participate, develop and excel in Rugby Union,” Al Kuwari said yesterday.
“The recent 2015 World Rugby Cup was the most successful on record and has increased the profile of the sport tenfold. QRF wishes to build on this framework and improve its established participation base, help grow Qatar Rugby to the next level and take it to a new domestic and global audience. In the coming years Qatar Rugby hopes to develop this competition and others to further improve the quality of Rugby and help embrace more players from clubs from all over the region” said the President.
Teams are already in high spirits about the championship league which starts at Aspire’s Warm Up Track, according to QRF. 
“We hope the Qatar rugby community will come down and support their favorite team and this wonderful sport that we admire so much. We have an  bonanza evening in store with premier grade rugby,” Al Kuwari said. The eight teams will play against each other for the right to call themselves Qatar’s 2016 Rugby 7’s Champions. 
The championship spans over eight weeks and includes preliminary rounds with each team playing each other twice– counted as 6 home and 7 away – and a finals series.
