The Tropical 7s has announced Unilink Sports as official international university rugby placement for the 2022 tournament. Unilink Sports is a university placement service for rugby players that allows athletes to continue their playing career while earning a Bachelors or Masters degree in the United Kingdom or Europe. Unilink offers a free placement service that connects the rugby athlete with universities based on academic preferences. Unilink guides athletes through the application process and helps them match up with the most suitable programs for them.

Through the partnership, Tropical 7s will encourage youth and collegiate athletes to explore post advanced degree opportunities while continuing to play the sport and to understand the options available to them. UNILINK SPORTS provides opportunities to student-athletes who wish to play rugby & study in the United Kingdom, Ireland and other countries within Europe. Students can study a Bachelors or Masters degree whilst playing rugby at one of the many partner universities.

“Unilink Sports is doing some really good things for the sport of rugby and those who want to play in an international university environment," Tropical 7s Executive Director John Siner said. "Being able to connect athletes with opportunities to navigate their rugby future is a huge benefit to everyone. We are happy to partner with Unilink Sports and help get the word out about their services. Everyone at the Tropical 7s will be able to interact with Unilink Sports.”

"Unilink Sports is proud to be a partner of the Tropical 7s Rugby Tournament," Director of Student-Athlete Recruitment at Unilink Sports Peter Antoniades said. "We recruit rugby players on behalf of our partner universities located all over the UK & Ireland. We hope to watch plenty of matches and meet all players who are thinking of Bachelors or Masters study over the tournament weekend and beyond.”

TROPICAL 7s has established itself as one of the world's leading youth rugby 7s tournaments, bringing school and university age teams from around the world together for a once-in-a-lifetime rugby tour experience under the warm Florida sunshine.
