Related: NBC Sports

NBC Sports Group will deliver more than 16 hours of the 2013 USA Sevens Vegas tournament this weekend on NBC, NBC Sports Network and Universal Sports. NBC Sports Network coverage begins on Saturday at 2 p.m. ET, from Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas, Nev. Tournament coverage will continue through the weekend and will include several full matches as well as highlights from the three-day event.

The USA Sevens Vegas tournament is the fifth of nine stops on the 2012-13 HSBC Sevens World Series. One of the premier Rugby Sevens events in the world, and the largest Rugby tournament in North America, USA Sevens Vegas will feature the USA Eagles and 15 other national teams competing to gain points in the Sevens World Series standings.

Played on the same size field as traditional 15-player rugby, sevens rugby is played with just seven players per team. Matches have seven minute halves, with two minute intervals for pool and knock-out matches.

Veteran play-by-play announcer Todd Harris will call the matches for NBC and NBC Sports Network. Harris will be joined in the booth by former USA Sevens captain and USA Rugby World Cup participant Brian Hightower. Marty Snider will report from the sidelines.

NBC Sports Group is the domestic television home of the HSBC Sevens World Series tour. In 2013, NBC, the NBC Sports Network and Universal Sports will combine to televise more than 34 hours of HSBC Rugby Sevens coverage from New Zealand, China, Japan, Scotland, England and the United States.

The NBC Sports Group is also the exclusive home of USA Sevens Vegas and the Collegiate Rugby Championship. NBC and NBC Sports Network will telecast seven hours of collegiate Rugby Sevens action from the Collegiate Rugby Sevens Championships in Philadelphia, PA., on June 1-2. The Collegiate Rugby Championship is a joint collaboration between the NBC Sports Group and USA Sevens LLC. The tournament features 20 of the top college rugby teams in the nation including Notre Dame, Texas, Cal and Florida.
