The Hottest 7s (formerly known as the Territory 7s) first kicked off in 1989 and has exploded in popularity ever since. 
Teams from Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Singapore and loads have travelled to Darwin to battle it out for the silverware. 
The women’s competition was introduced in 2007 and since then the talent has gone from strength to strength. 
In 2019 the competition will run from November 16-17 at Rugby Park in Darwin, Australia. 
There are four divisions including senior men’s, senior women’s, U18 youth boys and U18 youth girls.
Teams will be required to pay for registration fees plus cover their own travel and accommodation. 
The competition is made possible through the support of the Northern Territory Government who have helped the sport boom across the region. 
Tickets can be purchased at the gate with prices and cost $10 for the Saturday, $15 for the Sunday or $20 for the weekend. Persons under 18 can get in for free.
