At a Glance

The Cathay Pacific / HSBC Hong Kong Sevens is firmly established as the most popular Rugby Sevens event on IRB Sevens World Series. It is essentially one huge party, with an atmosphere second to none. Tens of thousands of fans from around the world flock to Hong Kong for the entertainment, rugby, nightlife and attractions that make Hong Kong a truly incredible destination. The tournament spans 3 days, beginning on Friday and finishing on Sunday and is organised by the Hong Kong Rugby Football Union who ensure this event stays at the top of the list for rugby fans.

Last year was incredible, with the final being played in a torrential downpour that hasn’t been seen for 200 years! New Zealand defeated England 26 – 7 to take out the HK 7′s Trophy.

2015 is poised to be yet again the biggest event on the Hong Kong sporting calendar.

We have been providing Official Travel Packages to the HK 7′s since 1997.

GETTING TO THE STADIUM

Walking or the MTR.

MTR Station, Causeway Bay, Exit F (Hong Kong Line)

From The Pennington Hotel @ Causeway Bay it is a 10 minute walk (simply follow the crowd).

From The Excelsior Hotel it is a 15-20 minute walk.

From all other hotels we recommend catching the MTR (train system) to Causeway Bay (EXIT F) and walking (10 mins) to the stadium, simply follow the crowd. The travel time depends on which hotel you’re staying at, but this is 30-35 minutes travel time at the most from any hotel. Taxis are a good option too, however, traffic can be heavy, so the MTR which is cheap, reliable, safe and clean is the best option.

We will also provide maps at our Tour Desks.

Please see the hotels tab for a map of hotel locations and the stadium

STADIUM / SEATING / TICKETS / ATMOSPHERE

Hong Kong Stadium holds over 40,000 fans in an ideal setting between huge skyscrapers and the mountains of Causeway Bay. Tickets are hard to come by and are only available via Official Agents, such as ourselves, or a ballot system for Hong Kong residents and Rugby Club Members in Hong Kong. There are no other ticket outlets, so choosing a travel package is not only great value, but one of the only ways to attend the famous Hong Kong Sevens. We encourage guests to purchase travel packages to avoid inflated street ticket pricing and fake tickets, so if you have friends wanting to attend, we encourage purchasing a travel package.

Seating at Hong Kong Stadium is NON-RESERVED. Meaning, best in best dressed. We encourage guests to arrive reasonably early. Advised times are; 16:00 on Friday and by 12:00 on Saturday and Sunday.

All lower level seating is uncovered (except a few back rows), the South and North stands are uncovered and the upper level seats are covered.

The South Stand is the party stand, here spectators dress-up in outrageous costumes, consume excessive amounts of alcohol, dance and provide a very entertaining spectacle. This stand can experience queues, but if you get in there early and are ready for a good time, you will have just that.

The stadium is a short distance from Wan Chai, where dozens of bars, nightclubs, pubs and restaurants are located. Here you will find thousands of rugby fans indulging after the games. The other option is to take the MTR or Taxis to Lan Kwai Fong, the other nightlife area on Hong Kong Island, which has more options than Wan Chai, but is not within walking distance.

FAQ


HOW CAN I BOOK A PACKAGE?

Use the booking form, found here >

Call us on 1300 788 666 or email travel@events.com.au


 

ARE THE SEATS AT THE STADIUM RESERVED?

No, all public seating is non-reserved. We recommend arriving just before the start of play each day. A schedule will be available on this webpage soon. Last years schedule can be found here >


 

CAN I UPGRADE MY MATCH TICKET?

Unfortunately we have no upgrades available due to the stadium layout.


 

CAN I PURCHASE 1-DAY TICKETS?

We only offer 3-day tickets in all of our packages and do not offer tickets individually or without travel services.


 

HOW DO I GET FROM OUR HOTEL TO THE STADIUM

Depending on your hotel choice, the best way is to walk. Due to the congestion in the streets and many blocked off pedestrian only areas, walking is often the fastest and most convenient way. Walking from Causeway Bay will take 10 – 15 minutes, it is uphill and there will be huge rugby crowds to follow.

To get to Causeway Bay, we recommend using a taxi, or the MTR. Choose the Hong Kong Line and get off at Causeway Bay Station, Exit F.

From any of our hotels, the maximum travel time will be approximately 30 minutes. Including using the MTR and walking.

The maximum cost will be 10-15 Hong Kong Dollars per person for a one-way ticket.


 

HOW DO I BOOK SIGHTSEEING TOURS

We have a large array of tours available, please ask us when booking.

See the Hong Kong Tourism Board website for top attractions.


 

WHAT IS THE RUGBY BUFFET LUNCHEON?

Our annual luncheon always takes place at the Excelsior Hotel (in Causeway Bay, only 10 – 15 minute walk from the Stadium). Exclusive to our Premier and Platinum guests, the buffet luncheon/brunch is a vibrant, extremely entertaining function pre-Sevens on Friday. Look forward to a superb international buffet, complimentary premium beverages, match ticket collection (for some package holders), guest speakers, entertainment and mingling with excited like-minded rugby fans. Last year we had the famous Australian comedian Vince Sorrenti who delivered a beyond hilarious routine that extended almost double his allotted time, it was too funny to stop!

Special Guest Gareth “Cooch” Chilcott will be there in 2015 + other special guests.

It’s the best way to warm up for the Hong Kong Sevens.


 

WHERE DO I COLLECT MY MATCH TICKETS

For Platinum Experience guests, match tickets will be collected at the Mandarin Oriental, at a special VIP Tour Desk.

Function guests will receive their match tickets on the Friday morning at The Excelsior Function.

All other guests will receive their tickets at a collection point to be advised.


 

I HAVE A GROUP COMING FROM DIFFERENT LOCATIONS, CAN YOU HELP?

Yes we can. We can book groups from anywhere, invoice guests separately and organise packages to suit.
