Kowloon RugbyFest 2020
The new date for the Kowloon RugbyFest 2020 has been confirmed as 15th October 2020. The one-day tens social rugby tournament was initially due to be held on the 1st April 2020 before it was postponed due to COVID-19.
Tanner De Witt Kowloon RugbyFest 2020
The Kowloon Rugbyfest is a very popular one-day social tournament which is played at Kings Park the same week before as the HK 7s rugby. In 2020 the tournament is called the Tanner De Witt Kowloon RugbyFest due to the title sponsor.
We asked the organisers this week if the new date of 15th October was confirmed and they told us “yes this is the new date for the RugbyFest, we will update the website and FB shortly.”
On February 13th 2020, the Cathay Pacific HSBC HK7s 2020 announced it was postponed to October 16-18 2020.
As a result, at the time the RugbyFest has had to adjust too. They announced:
“Following Hong Kong Rugby Union’s protocols, we regret to inform you that the Tanner De Witt Kowloon RugbyFest will also be postponed until October 2020 (Date tbc). We are hopeful of your understanding and ongoing commitment to the tournament and we can assure you that plans are underway to make sure the Tanner De Witt Kowloon RugbyFest tournament and evening dinner will be as entertaining as ever. We look forward to welcoming you to Hong Kong in October 2020!”
