As announced by World Rugby in March, the HKRU will host one of the legs in the HSBC World Rugby Women’s Sevens Series as part of the 2020 Hong Kong Sevens – the 45th edition of the iconic event Rugby sevens live .
Details on the Public Ticket Ballot, hospitality offerings and Overseas Travel Agents partnering with the event will be announced in the coming weeks. Fans are encouraged to sign up to the event’s newsletter at hksevens.com and follow official social channels to stay informed.
The 2019 Hong Kong Sevens was a sell-out event with Fiji creating history by securing a fifth consecutive title in Hong Kong with a 21-7 victory over France in the Cup final.
The tournament provided four scintillating days of rugby action across the Men’s Series, Men’s Qualifier and Women’s Qualifier, while the Cathay Pacific/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens Festival delivered two popular fanzones – Sevens Central and the Fanwalk at Lee Gardens – as well as a headline concert with international pop icon Gwen Stefani presented by Marriott Bonvoy.
The 2020 Hong Kong Sevens is once again expected to draw 120,000 fans to Hong Kong Stadium to enjoy world-class rugby revelry and entertainment.
