HK Rugby Union to rent designated hotel for players of HK Sevens, point-to-point transportation arranged


1st August 2022 – (Hong Kong) The Hong Kong Rugby Sevens, which has not been held for three and a half years, is scheduled to resume this year and is expected to be held in November. Legislative Councillor Nixie Lam Lam said during a radio program today (1st) that the Hong Kong Rugby Union will rent a designated hotel for incoming players to stay.

Before training and the game, the Organising Committee will arrange a special transport to pick up the players to the designated location and to and from the stadium, so as to reduce the contact between the players and the community.

In addition, there will be 85% occupancy limit set by the LCSD during the game and players are required to undergo daily nucleic acid testing. Lam believes that the resumption of international competition will help reshape and enhance Hong Kong’s international image. As for overseas spectators coming to Hong Kong to watch the game, they will not be expected to be exempted from quarantine. Due to the COVID-19 epidemic, the Hong Kong Sevens has been postponed or cancelled five times. The Hong Kong Rugby Union announced in November last year that the event would be postponed to November this year.

The Hong Kong Rugby Union will start to contact all stakeholders from next week, and will announce more events and details including ticketing information as soon as possible.
