The annual Hong Kong Sevens, or as the locals like to say, 香港國際七人欖球賽, is the seventh tournament on the annual HSBC Sevens circuit and is considered the premier tournament of the entire series. After an absence of three years, the tournament is back, starting on 4 November 2022 at the Hong Kong Stadium.
Hong Kong Sevens back after three years of Covid-19 threat
Tickets for this year would be long sold out, but why not put it on your to-do list of destinations for 2023, or later? Considered one of the biggest parties in the world, the Hong Kong Sevens now rivals Rio de Janeiro’s Carnival as an exuberant party destination. Scene to be seen, for the hip and trendy.
Every day is costume day, whether visitors choose to come adorned in uniform celebrating their nationality, there is no short supply of Superman, Batman, airline pilots, nurses in tight uniforms, and every costume you can imagine, all mixed in a stadium with bonhomie and great cheer. The rugby is hot, but almost incidental to the party.
