For the first time ever, Disney and the RFU are teaming up for the Rugby 7’s final round of the series in London. This of course is coinciding with the release of the seventh film in the Star Wars franchise, Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

"“Darth Vader and a select squad of Stormtroopers will descend on the home of England Rugby with the galactic themed 2015 Marriott London Sevens on the 16th-17th May. While scrum wars will be at play on the field, the number of spectators rocketing through the gates is set to be out of this world.”"

The video of Darth Vader and his Stormtroopers taking the field can be seen here, which is pretty darn cool:

England Rugby Chief Commercial and Marketing Office, Sophie Goldschmidt had this to say:

"“We have chosen a galactic theme for the 2015 Marriott London Sevens and the famous faces from Star Wars will really help bring this to life in and around Twickenham Stadium. The atmosphere here at Twickenham is part of what makes the tournament so successful and such a big hit with fans. Last year’s event was a cracking weekend stuffed full of fantastic rugby action, some wild moves, both on and off the field, and some brilliant fancy dress efforts. 2015 promises to take fans on a ride into galaxies far, far away with a weekend of action that is bigger, better and louder!”"

The 2015 Marriott London Sevens galactic theme is encouraging fans to get in on the fun by arriving in their best Star Wars cosplay.

“Many of the spectators arriving in Star Wars fancy dress so expect to see plenty of Darth Mauls, Luke ‘Try-walkers’ and ‘Jabba the Rucks’.”
