A family of two adults and two kids can watch a full day of Sevens Olympic qualification for as little as €10.

Speaking at the announcement of the tickets for the repechage going on sale, Ireland Women's Sevens captain Lucy Mulhall said: "As a team we're working really hard towards this event in June. While maintaining our status at the World Series remains really important to us, the chance to get to Rio and take part in Olympic Games is something we really want to achieve.

"The fact that the repechage is taking place on home soil in UCD is really great and we'd hope to see lots of Irish supporters there to cheer us on."

Ireland will compete alongside Kazakhstan, China, Hong Kong, Tunisia, Zimbabwe, Madagascar, Russia, Spain, Portugal, Mexico, Trinidad & Tobago, Samoa, Cook Islands, Argentina and Venezuela for the final coveted place at the 2016 Rio Olympics.

Tickets for the event, which is supported by Sport Ireland and Fáilte Ireland, are available now from Ticketmaster.ie/Sevens.
