The first day of the London Sevens has been sold out over a week ahead of kick-off but tickets do remain for Day Two of the World Series finale.

News of the sell-out broke on Thursday, with the International Rugby Board revealing that all the 75,000 seats were snapped up at Twickenham.

“Over 115,000 are expected to get in on the 'Monster' spirit at Twickenham, with England Rugby teaming up with global hit Moshi Monsters,” read a statement from IRB Sevens.

Meanwhile, England captain Tom Mitchell has revealed that the excitement is building ahead of running out on their home patch next weekend.

“The Marriott London Sevens promises to be a huge weekend, as it has been for the last couple of years, and it keeps growing, so it should be a huge event,” said Mitchell.

“There are going to be a lot of people there by all accounts and it's a favourite of ours as a team, but we've got a job to do this weekend in Glasgow first and that's 100% where our focus is at the moment.”
