11 teams have been invited, and one has qualified for the competition through the 2014 Premiership Rugby Sevens Series contested by English and Welsh clubs.
The 12 teams are split into 3 pools of 4 teams, and each team will play all the others in their pool once on day one. Matches will be played according to International Rugby Board Laws of the Game - 7s Variations, and based on the result, teams will receive league points.
Following the completion of the pool stage, teams will be seeded based on league points and position in their respective pools. The top two teams from each pool, and the two best third place teams, will contest the cup competition. The remaining four teams will contest the shield competition.
These competitions take place on day two as knock-out competitions, with the winners progressing to the next stage at each round. However, the losers of the cup quarter-finals will instead drop down to contest a plate knock-out competition.
