Sydney - The Australian Rugby Union on Monday announced Sydney will take over from the Gold Coast as host of the Australian leg of the Sevens world series for the next four years.
The series consists of nine tournaments around the world in which national teams compete for points, with the fast-paced sport set to make its Olympic debut at the 2016 Games in Rio.
Tournament dates are yet to be confirmed but the Gold Coast recently kicked off the series in October.
"Sydney is one of the world's iconic cities, a sports-mad city with an exceptional record of attracting and hosting major events like Rugby World Cup and the Olympic Games," said World Rugby chairman Bernard Lapasset.
"Sydney's inclusion within a stellar series hosting line-up is exciting for players and fans and underscores the strength of the rugby sevens brand in the global sporting marketplace."
The city will host the Sevens leg from the 2015-16 season.
ARU chief Bill Pulver added: "We truly believe that Sydney has the potential to match the excitement surrounding tournaments like Hong Kong, Twickenham and Wellington in terms of event experience and crowd numbers."
