Sevens tickets sell out in less than four minutes

Tickets to next year's Wellington round of the IRB rugby sevens series sold out in three and a half minutes on Tuesday morning.

It's the 10th year in a row that Wellington's Westpac Stadium will host a full house for the popular event.

Tournament general manager Steve Walters says a lot of people missed out on tickets so a hard line will be taken with any ticket scalpers.

The IRB sevens season kicks off in Dubai in December; the Wellington round is on 4-5 February.
