Global leaders in rugby ball technology, innovation and quality, Gilbert Rugby are the perfect fit for World Rugby’s leading Sevens tournaments.

Gilbert Rugby is a company steeped in tradition, with over 195 years of rugby heritage. When the ‘inventor of the game’ William Webb Ellis picked up the ball and ran with it on the Close at Rugby School in 1823, it was a Gilbert ball he chose. Since that eventful day, Gilbert have been synonymous with rugby and have supplied balls to teams from all nations, at all levels and are proud to be the Official Ball Supplier for an unprecedented seventh consecutive Rugby World Cup in 2019, as well as the Rugby World Cup 7s in 2018.

Gilbert’s consistent research and development, and exceptional love for the game, ensures they remain the number one choice in World Rugby. Along with all of the top nations that Gilbert support, we are also the official match Ball of Aviva Premiership Rugby, Super Rugby, European Rugby, Guinness Pro 14 and the Top 14 finals.

Gilbert are delighted to have been chosen as the official ball of the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series and will continue to work closely with both World Rugby and the individual tournaments to bring the most innovative products and the best support to enable the world’s leading players to perform to their full potential.
