FAQ for rules:

Question: What is the minimal age to participate to the tournament?
Answer: The tournament is opened for players above 18 years old (consequently no U15, U17 teams).

Question: Is it possible to inscribe an Old Boys’ team?
Answer:  On Friday before the Oktoberfest Sevens there is an Old Boys’ tournament. We encourage your team therefore to take part in this Oktoberfest Golden Oldies tournament. Nevertheless, participation of an Old Boys’ team to the tournament is not strictly forbidden (no maximal age of participants).

Question: What is the level of the tournament?
Answer:  When looking back on the participation of past years tournament, different types of teams entered the tournament: from “on-tour” teams aiming to join sport during the tournament and fun during Octoberfest, to good level teams who want to evaluate their performances by encountering teams of their level. We try to adapt the game schedule in such a way that types of teams enjoy the tournament and achieve their sport-related objectives.

Question: Is it possible to get a game schedule for the tournament?
Answer: This question is mainly asked from teams who definitively enter in the final and who want to prepare their teams according to their potential opponents. It is quite difficult to make up in advance the definitive game schedule, because it is not seldom that teams inscribe in the last days, and some teams simply do not appear on Saturday morning due to unexpected beer consumption on the previous Friday night… Therefore we have to be each year very flexible to set up the game schedule. Nevertheless, we will do our best to provide as much information as possible (already inscribed teams, number of pools, …).

Question: Is it possible to know the inscribed teams to the tournament?
Answer: see previous question.

Question: Is their a limit for the number of participants per team?
Answer: Each team should have at maximum 12 participants for the whole tournament. It is clear that if you want to come with more players, we can arrange “pirate” teams in such a way that everyone plays and enjoys the day. If you bring 20 players or more you should inscribe two teams.

Question: Do we need a permission from German rugby league to be able to participate to the tournament?
Answer:  No, the Oktoberfest Sevens tournament takes place outside of the regular German Rugby Board’s Leagues.
