Hi All
I colleague who is trying to learn about rugby has attended the HK 7's twice. He cant seem to remember too much as seems to have been pissed most of the time.
Any way, he is very keen to organise a trip there next year and the question is:

How do you get tickets for the event?

Any regular goers, Asia based bordies who can point the way.

thanks

package deal through a travel agent is the easiest otherwise knowing someone that lives there and links to rugby or a bank
Im still thinking about next year after postponing this year, which was a good idea as it pissed down and NZ did a shirtless haka after winning :yawn:

You want guaranteed tickets, you must get a package as grievous has said. Or you can almost certainly pick ones up by wandering around Lockhart rd in Wan Chai on the week before.

According to the SCMP, this year's tournament has been postponed to October.


Last night's race meeting at Happy Valley had 122 spectators, basically everybody except stakeholders were not admitted. The same meeting last year drew over 19,000.

I’m baffled - why bump a thread from 6 years ago about trying to get hold of tickets for 2014 to say this?!

Anybody who is interested in the HK Sevens, or Hong Kong in general, will check it out. If you are baffled, it is not the thread for you.

They would also have checked out a new thread with the heading Hong Kong Sevens Postponed to October. And the opening post would have been the information they needed. Anyone not checking out the date, which is most posters, would think this was a current request by swissguy, not a 6 year old one!

Bumping threads that haven't been posted in for more than two weeks is stupid. So stupid that most modern forums just forbid it, automatically locking stale threads.

If you've something new to say, just start another thread. You can link to the old one if it's relevant (in this case it wouldn't be, because 2014 was 6 years ago and swissguy's mate either did or didn't get tickets back then...).

The Hong Kong Rugby Union has lost revenues of HK$151 mill because of the cancellation of this year's Sevens. According to a news report, the Sevens accounts for 95% of their revenue.

There have been some redundancies, but they apparently have adequate financial reserves for the time being. Cancellation of next year's event might pose a problem for them, though, I reckon.
