Which is your closest hotel
Definitely The Excelsior Hotel, approximately a 15-20 minute casual walk to the stadium, come and go as you like. All our other hotels are on Hong Kong island and a short cab ride or MTR to Causeway Bay and walk to the stadium.
Is there merchandise at the stadium?
Yes, but some items sell out very early. We include merchandise as an add-on for Silver or its included in our Gold or Platinum packages.
When should I advise my sizes for merchandise?
As soon as you book and only up to the 31st of December 2013 because after that we have to place the order and guess sizes – please note the sizes run slightly small, so if your usually a L, you will most likely be an XL.
Do you book Day Tours in and around Hong Kong?
Yes, see our separate tours brochure (upgrades tab above) or contact us and we can send you all of the details
What’s the situation with alcohol at the stadium?
The Upper Level Stands are alcohol free at the seats but there are bars on the concourse East and West. The lower level seats allow alcohol consumption, along with the Southern and Northern Stands.
What’s the hot place to be with fancy dress?
The South Stand is notoriously known as the party stand, there can be queues to get in, but once you’re there you’ll stand out if you’re dressed normally.
Is there Corporate Hospitality available?
At the time of releasing our product there isn’t, but it’s likely some will become available later – we will be able to upgrade you later so you should buy our listed package now to avoid missing out.
When should I book?
Don’t hold back thinking prices may fall – this is always a sell out event annually, we can’t get enough tickets. Some hotels go quickly with group bookings at any time and we have the best value packages available in the market – get onto it as soon as you can to ensure you’re there in 2014
Can I purchase tickets only?
No. Only Hong Kong residents have the ability to purchase tickets (via a ballot). Additionally, we don’t sell tickets only, under any circumstances.

Hong Kong Information ~ Cathay Pacific/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens 2014
Positioned at the mouth of the Pearl River Delta on the coast of southern China, Hong Kong’s geographical position as a gateway between the East and West has made it an attractive centre for international trade. Set against the beautiful Victoria Harbour, Hong Kong Island lies to the south of the harbour, while the Kowloon Peninsula forms its northern shores. To the north of Kowloon lies the New Territories, which stretches all the way to Mainland China. Hong Kong is also home to more than 200 outlying Islands.
Under the principle of ‘One Country, Two Systems’, Hong Kong became a Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China on 1 July 1997. This arrangement allows the city to enjoy a high degree of autonomy, including retaining its capitalist system, independent judiciary and rule of law, free trade and freedom of speech.
While the majority of the city’s population are Chinese speakers with 88% of the people speaking Cantonese, walking around Hong Kong will expose you to a medley of Asian and European languages. English is widely spoken and most official signs are bilingual.
Hong Kong is a multicultural city where different languages and dialects and multiple denominations co-exist. Hong Kong is a city of contrasts with a mix of tradition and innovation, creating a unique contemporary culture.
