Hong Kong Rugby 7s Photos

The Hong Kong Sevens is the highlight of the HSBC Sevens World Series organized by the International Rugby Board and hosted by the Hong Kong Rugby Football Union. The Sevens takes place at the Hong Kong stadium in late March, usually the week-end before Easter. Our Hong Kong Rugby 7s Photos capture some of the action!

Hong-Kong-Rugby-7s-photosThe Seven’s World Series circuit consists of nine tournaments in eight countries, and visits Australia, the United Arab Emirates, South Africa, New Zealand, the United States, Hong Kong, Japan, Scotland and England. Between 2000-2013 the tournament has been dominated by Fiji, New Zealand and England, all with 4 wins each.

The 40,000 all-seated stadium is always a sell-out. With heavy corporate sponsorship, seat allocations to airlines to encourage tourism and to the local clubs, only about 4,000 seats are available to Hong Kong residents by public lottery. Somehow, that doesn’t seem to stop the touts selling real and fake tickets outside the stadium throughout the Friday-Sunday tournament! The Men’s Sevens week-end follows the Men’s 10’s and Women’s Sevens in Hong Kong, so many supporters are in town for a week of games and festivities, including ‘long’ lunches and dinners.

Highlights of the Hong Kong sevens are the carnival atmosphere during the Pool games on Saturday, The antics in the South Stand, the fancy dress outfits, the Women’s Sevens final, bands, displays and exhibition Mini games. The Mini games for the kids are early in the morning, but they provide good entertainment for the keen fans and parents who arrive at the stadium when it opens to reserve the best public seating on the ground level.
