This is the first International Rugby Board (IRB) sanctioned tournament scheduled to take place in the aftermath of the 2011 RWC Finals in New Zealand, and as such the global interest in the tournament will be high. The recent 2011 Under-19 Championships in the Cayman Islands generated 12000 views over the 8 days of the tournament, but with the presence of teams from the North American mainland and the French-speaking islands, viewership of the internet stream for the 2011 NACRA 7s Championships is expected to be significantly higher.

The BRFU is currently selling ad space on the internet stream at competitive rates. With 86 matches taking place over 2 days between 8.30 am and 5.30 pm on each day, advertisers will gain significant exposure during the day across the Caribbean and North American target markets.
