The Hong Kong Sevens is just around the corner, but if you haven’t bagged yourself a ticket, you can still join in the fun at the Cathay Pacific/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens Festival.
April is only a week away, and in our city, that means that The Hong Kong Sevens is here. Every year thousands of costume-clad Hong Kongers head to Causeway Bay for a piece of the action, but if you’re taking a break this year (or just didn’t manage to get your hands on tickets!), you can still soak up every bit of the action at the Cathay Pacific/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens Festival.
Taking place all weekend long from Friday, 5 April to Sunday, 7 April, this year’s Cathay Pacific/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens Festival is going above and beyond to ensure that the festivities are the best yet, with not just its usual activities at Lee Gardens, but also Sevens Central at the Central Harbourfront. And have you heard? The one and only Gwen Stefani will be performing live at Hong Kong’s Central Harbourfront event space to celebrate the beginning of the festival. As if we weren’t excited enough for the Sevens weekend, the three-time GRAMMY® Award winner and global icon will be performing a one-time show on Friday, 5 April, kick starting the weekend of music, entertainment and all the live-action rugby from the stadium. Tickets are on sale now for $780, make sure to get yours here to not miss out!
After the kick off concert, gates will be open from 12pm to 8pm at Sevens Central, with free entry all day on Saturday, 6 and Sunday, 7 April. The harbourfront setting is the perfect spot to catch all the action from the stadium, with the games shown live on the big screens over the two-day event. Along with capturing every try from the stadium, Sevens Central will also have live music all weekend, featuring tribute acts for the likes of Pink, Queen, Oasis and The Rolling Stones, along with happy hour drinks prices and giveaways.
