The Heartland 7’s Tournament, hosted by the Kansas City Blues, has moved to a new format and location for 2016! Confirmed for July 9th, 2016, the Heartland 7’s will be contested on the natural grass stadium pitch at Children’s Mercy Victory Field at Swope Soccer Village. The tournament will serve as one of three Qualifiers for the USA Rugby 7’s Club Nationals for the Frontier 7’s Region. The Frontier 7’s Region will include teams from MO, KS, NE, SD, CO, UT, and WY.

Frontier and non-Frontier teams are invited to join us for all Divisions. In addition to the Qualifier Division, we'll also have a re-formatted open competition with two divisions: Men's Open Division, and Boy's High School Division. These divisions will compete beginning in the early morning on the surrounding full-sized synthetic turf fields, and will play the Championship Rounds inside the stadium on Children’s Mercy Victory Field in the early afternoon.

2016 will be the Blues’ 10th year hosting this event, and we’re very excited to be raising our game at a world-class venue like Swope Soccer Village! State-of-the-art Swope Soccer Village features nine fields in the heart of Kansas City’s historic Swope Park. The facility is the training home of Sporting Kansas City (MLS), FC Kansas City (NWSL), Swope Park Rangers (USL), and the KC Blues (USA Rugby).

We can guarantee 4 matches for everyone... it will be a GREAT time and has always been very competitive and fun across all divisions.

Entry fees:

  • $400 for Men's Qualifier
  • $300 for Men's Open ($250 if a Qualifier Club's 2nd Side)
  • $200 for Boy's High School
