Tickets for February's New Zealand leg of the IRB rugby sevens series sold out in less than four minutes this 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 they will be taking a hard line with any ticket scalpers.

The Wellington tournmament is on the 4th and 5th of February.

The sevens season kicks off in Dubai in December.
