As well as the Hong Kong Rugby Sevens being Asia’s biggest sporting event it is also regarded as the premier tournament in the HSBC Sevens World Series.
The Hong Kong Sevens start on Friday 25th March and concludes on Sunday 27th March. During the weekend there will be a number of group games taking place while the teams compete to play in the finals which are held on the last day. The rugby seven games are different to the rugby games you are used to watching on TV, the teams are cut down to seven players and the duration of each games is reduced to around 15 minutes.
The Hong Kong Sevens stadium is divided by the South Stand and the North Stand. The South Stand is the party stand where the fans and spectators enjoy themselves by dressing up, dancing, getting involved in sing songs and Mexican waves as well as having a few drinks! Whereas the North Stand is for those who want a quieter more relaxed experience. If you are in Hong Kong during the Rugby Sevens and don’t have tickets, there are plenty of bars and pubs that will be offering special deals and showing the tournament on big screens.
