Tickets to the next Rugby Sevens tournament in Wellington in February all sold in under three minutes on Tuesday.

They went on sale for the two day event at 9am.

Prices were up to $195 an adult - about $20 higher than last year.

New Zealand International Sevens general manager Steve Walters says 10,100 of the 25,000 that were available went on sale.

The Wellington Sevens event is entering its 13th year in the capital and is one of nine legs of the tournament held around the world each year.

Tickets were also all sold in about three minutes in previous years.
