THE Vodafone Fiji 7s team will start its preparation for the 2014/15 HSBC Sevens World Series this month.

Coach Ben Ryan knows the importance of the upcoming series as the top four will automatically qualify for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The seven other teams in the Olympic Games will be made up of six winners of the IRB regional competitions and one from a world play-off.

Ryan said they needed to be on top of their game to achieve the top four finishing.

"For Fiji, we start back to training in July. The national 7s team has never had a proper pre-season block of training so it will be great to start this process off and go hard from the start," he wrote in his monthly column on ur7s.com.

The 2014/15 7s series will begin with the Gold Coast 7s in Australia in October before the final two stops of 2014 takes players to Dubai and Port Elizabeth in South Africa in December.

The series will resume in February with the Wellington 7s in New Zealand before moving to Las Vegas for the USA 7s.

The Asian leg of the series will start with the Hong Kong 7s at the end of March followed by Japan 7s in April.

The final two rounds of the series are due to take place in Glasgow and London in May.
