England Sevens has agreed a new partnership with digital music service Spotify to enhance the match-day experience for fans at this weekend’s Marriott London Sevens.

International DJ and Spotify ambassador Seb Fontaine will appear live at Twickenham Stadium on Saturday (May 11) to perform an exclusive set for fans attending the first day of the Marriott London Sevens.

Fontaine will first take to the stage in Twickenham’s West Car Park between 4.45 and 5.15pm before heading into the stadium to pump up the crowd ahead of England’s final pool match against Argentina. As well as providing fans with select pre-match, half-time and post-match tunes, the legendary DJ’s sounds will accompany all try scoring celebrations in the final match of the day.

And for fans wanting to get a better insight into what makes England Sevens players tick, squad members James Rodwell, Jeff Williams, Ollie Phillips and Tom Powell have created their own playlists, including a wide range of songs from Bastille’s hit Pompeii to Princess of China – Coldplay’s collaboration with Rihanna. There is also a safari-themed England Sevens team playlist for fans to enjoy during the final round of the HSBC World Sevens Series.

Speaking ahead of the weekend’s action, England Sevens player James Rodwell said: “Everyone in the squad is massively into their music, so it’s been great fun working with Spotify to create our own personal playlists. Hopefully the fans will like what we listen to! I think it’s great that we have Seb Fontaine playing a set ahead of our final pool match on Saturday. Playing at Twickenham is fantastic as the crowd is just immense and really gets behind the team. We can’t wait to get out there on Saturday.”
