Premieres Monday 17 December, 7.30pm LIVE on SKY Sport 1 Channel 051

SKY Sport is proud to present the Red Bull Ignite7: 2018 Draft documentary, premiering Monday 17th December at 7.30pm on SKY Sport 1.

Follow the hopes and dreams of 96 young male and female athletes handpicked from up and down the country as they strive to become the next All Blacks Sevens and Black Ferns Sevens superstars.

The SKY Sport produced documentary was shot over the four-day Red Bull Ignite7 Draft event from 21-24 November 2018. The event included an intensive high performance skills and testing assessment and a one-day tournament which was broadcast LIVE on SKY Sport.

The SKY Sport camera crew were embedded in the entire process, capturing all the action, the drama, and no doubt uncovering some of the rugby sevens superstars of tomorrow. SKY Director of Sport, Richard Last says: “The Red Bull Ignite7: 2018 Draft has been a huge success for all involved. When you watch the documentary, it will be clear to you as it is to me, why New Zealand’s rugby talent pool is in such good shape. The calibre of some of the athletes on show is remarkable, and initiatives like this from NZ Rugby will only serve to enhance the talent pathways for our young New Zealand athletes.

“What the documentary also demonstrates is SKY Sport and NZ Rugby’s incredibly close relationship right down to the grass roots. We are committed to them at every level to produce great LIVE and supporting rugby content. Just this weekend for example, we will be producing and broadcasting LIVE coverage from the Tect National Sevens from Tauranga and the Condor World Schools Sevens from Sacred Heart College in Auckland. This relationship will only continue to get stronger with initiatives like the Red Bull Ignite7 Draft and we can’t wait for next year!”

NZR High Performance Sevens Manager Tony Philp says: “Red Bull Ignite7 is a great example of NZ Rugby working together with our partners to produce a fantastic and unique product. From a high performance perspective we believe we have unearthed and developed some exciting talent and developed an event that will broaden our base and enhance our sevens programmes and pathways. Having the SKY documentary crew along for the ride to capture the event every step of the way means we can share our experiences and the athlete’s experiences with the New Zealand public and bring them along on our journey, which is very important to us at NZ Rugby. I’m sure this won’t be the last time people see and hear about some of the athletes involved and featured in Red Bull Ignite7: 2018 Draft.”
