Cathay/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens 2024
The tickets for the highly anticipated Cathay/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens 2024 go on sale for general admission on 1 December 2023. This will likely be the last time the famous sevens event takes place at the Hong Kong Stadium before moving to the newly built Kai Tak Sports Park.
This will be the first time the Hong Kong Sevens are part of the newly revamped HSBC SVNS Series and will be held from April 5-7 2024 on the 30th anniversary of the Sevens being held at the So Kon Po stadium.
Whereas most of the events on the re-imagined sevens circuit have an Olympic format of 12 women’s and men’s teams, the Cathay/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens 2024 will have more teams with a healthy Asian contingent included, making this the largest Sevens event on the SVNS circuit.
Robbie McRobbie, CEO of the Hong Kong China Rugby Union told Rugby Asia 247 that they had special permission to invite the regional teams and they would be competing in a mini pool among themselves but not compete with the core SVNS teams.
“World Rugby have been supportive and allowed us to basically organise our own competition for the men and women. So we invited (for the men), Japan, who unfortunately were relegated from the World Series last year, and the China men, who I think we’ve all been impressed with the progress they’ve made over the last 12-18 months. They’ll come down and play with the Hong Kong, China men.
For the women, China and Thailand will play the HK China women, while the Japanese women are still on the SVNS Series, which is great.”
He added that these mini-competition pool matches will be spread among the main core SVNS matches, adding, “Hopefully, that will provide the local interest, which you know, we want to preserve.”
