The Bill McLaren Foundation has been confirmed as the official charity of the com- petition.
There will be a bucket collection and fans over 18 will be able to drink Bill's IPA – which has been produced especially for the foundation by the Black Isle Brewing Company.
Sixteen of the best international sevens teams will play in the penultimate leg of the HSBC Sevens World Series on May 5 and 6.
Linda Lawson, the late Scot's daughter, believes her father, a great advocate of the abbreviated game, would be delighted.
She said: "Dad adored sevens. His final TV commentary was at the 2002 Melrose Sevens and I remember how excited he was when he came back from the Hong Kong event for the first time.
"Sevens, and the values of the sport, were so close to dad's heart and we are delighted that the Foundation will benefit from the official charity status at the Emirates Airline Glasgow 7s."
Meanwhile, Scotland's record cap holder Chris Paterson welcomed the appointment of the Bill McLaren Foundation as the official charity.
Paterson rates McLaren's commentary of the 90-metre try he scored for Gala against Melrose – as Gala won the Ladies Cup – as one of his favourite memories in rugby. He said: "I think it's really fitting the Foundation has this official link to the Emirates Airline tournament."
Meanwhile, Wales coach Warren Gatland, 48, has suffered a foot injury after a fall from a ladder in New Zealand. He will return home has been delayed.
