The Kabeberi Sevens is played as part of the Kenya National Sevens Series, and is one of only two events of that series to be played in Nairobi. For this reason, the Kabeberi Sevens has traditionally been the best-attended tournament in the series, with many Nairobi residents coming to the Kabeberi to watch Kenya’s world-famous Rugby Sevens stars whom they only see on television the rest of the year. Due to this, the numbers attending the Kabeberi Sevens have increased steadily over the years with the 2013 and 2014 events attracting over 10,000 spectators throughout the weekend.
