HK7s - FAQs

Why did you cancel the November 2021 event?

Unfortunately, the difficulties and uncertainties around travel restrictions and the rising global concern over emerging variants, combined with the pressing timelines behind staging our beloved tournament have made hosting the Cathay Pacific/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens to the HKRU’s high standards unachievable in 2021. This decision was a tough one and follows detailed and constructive dialogue with World Rugby, the participating unions and relevant Hong Kong government bodies, and has been taken with the health and wellbeing of the rugby community and the wider public as top priority.

Will the Hong Kong Sevens be back in 2022?

YES – mark your calendars for 1-3 April 2022.
