The New York City 7s are one of two teams from the US that will take part in the 2014 World Club 7s, with the second invitation going to the winners of the Elite City Sevens, which will be held in Houston on June 7.
In total 12 teams, from seven nations, will take part in the World Club 7s tournament. All teams will compete against each other on day one, before dividing into three Cup competitions on day two, with the leading sides competing for the chance to be crowned the best club 7s side in rugby.
Speaking about the announcement of New York City 7s' participation in the 2014 World Club 7s tournament, Nigel Melville, CEO, USA Rugby said: "We are delighted that New York City 7s have been invited to participate in the World Club 7s.
"They took enormous value from participation last year winning the Plate and providing elite sevens competition for a number of our exciting young Eagles players. As we grow the game of rugby in the USA, exposing our players to the elite global game is critical to their development."
