Rugby Visitors' Guide

Message from Hong Kong Rugby Union

On behalf of the Hong Kong Rugby Union, it gives me great pleasure to welcome all visitors to the 2019 Cathay Pacific/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens and the world-famous ‘Rugby Week’ in Hong Kong.

Another outstanding weekend of world-class sports entertainment awaits, with 40 international teams, across both men’s and women’s sevens competitions, visiting Hong Kong for one of rugby’s most unique gatherings.

They are joined by an estimated 20,000 international rugby fans visiting Hong Kong in the same period.

We greatly appreciate the support and enthusiasm of all the fans, both local and international, as well as the publishers for helping spread the message and excitement to even more international visitors – especially with our multiple fan activations around the city fully open to the public so that everyone can share the Sevens spirit during their stay.

The HKRU has once again worked hard to ensure that this unparalleled weekend well serves its deserving causes. Not only does the Sevens support the continued growth of rugby in Hong Kong, it is improving lives around the world through the power of sport, thanks to our continued association with Laureus, the Official Charity of the Hong Kong Sevens.

We are also striving to minimise the environmental footprint of this fantastic weekend through our Green Sevens campaign, with reusable pints introduced this year to minimise single-use plastic waste. We ask all fans and tourists visiting Hong Kong to join our efforts and help keep Hong Kong beautiful by properly disposing of refuse.

With the lure of promotion to the World Series for the men’s and women's teams in the qualifiers, and the World Series sides chasing automatic qualification for the 2020 Olympics, the competition on pitch is sure to be thrilling. The entertainment in and around the stands, and spilling into the streets this week, has also set the stage for another spectacular and memorable weekend.

We hope that all visitors to our great city enjoy their stay and hope to see you all at this year’s Sevens!
