Cathay Pacific/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens – FAQ’s

16 November 2021
BACK TO NEWS

Why did you postpone the April 2022 event?

Whilst we have been consistent in our belief that we can stage a safe tournament in April 2022, this also requires confidence that all participating teams will be able to travel to Hong Kong for the tournament, which we are not able to predict for April given ongoing travel restrictions and inbound quarantine. When offered the opportunity by World Rugby to reschedule to November, we felt it was in the best interest of the tournament, teams and fans to take it. 

What about April 2023?

We will be back to our usual spot in April 2023! 

I have a question about ticketing

Ticketing information for the November 2022 event will be released mid next year. For all other ticketing enquiries, please contact us and we will be happy to help. 

I’m an HKRU RUC member holding a ticket for the April 2022 event. What should I do?

RUC membership tickets can be rolled to November 2022 or offered a full refund. Please contact us if you would like assistance. 

I’m interested in corporate hospitality for November 2022

Great! Please contact us and our hospitality team will be able to send some personalised package options.

Will there be a public ballot for the new event date?

We will share updates next year about ticketing plans for the November 2022 event. In the meantime, make sure you are signed up to our emails for the updates and alerts. 

What does this mean for the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series schedule?

A replacement for the 2022 HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series will be announced in due course, and the November 2022 edition of the Cathay Pacific/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens will open the 2023 HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series. It’s set to be a fantastic year of rugby sevens action with the Commonwealth Games in July and the Rugby World Cup Sevens in September 2022.
