Some Basics about Rugby and Rugby Sevens

Hong Kong Rugby Sevens

Rugby is much like football, the sport is wildly popular in England and the Commowealth States, including Australia and New Zealand, from which it has spread to the Pacific Islands. In fact, rugby is considered the National sport in New Zealand.

Rugby Sevens is a variation of Rugby Union. The teams consist of seven players instead of 15 players that participate in regular matches.

The games are quick consisting of two seven-minute halves, so basically one match is done in 15 minutes and entire tournaments can be played over a weekend.

Another landmark in the popularity of the sport will be Rugby Sevens' debut at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

There are two main tournaments in Rugby Sevens: The World Cup and the World Series. The World Cup is held every 4 years, next will take place in 2018 in California.

In the annual Sevens World Series, national teams compete in a circuit of 10 rounds, one of which is played in Hong Kong which is known as the Hong Kong Sevens .

The Hong Kong Rugby Sevens has helped the sport in becoming quite popular accross Asia and is one of the most predominant legs in the World Series circuit which spans all five continents, the 2015-2016 Sevens World Series rounds:

  • Round 1 - Dubai
  • Round 2 - South Africa
  • Round 3 - New Zealand
  • Round 4 - Australia
  • Round 5 - USA
  • Round 6 - Canada
  • Round 7 - Hong Kong
  • Round 8 - Singapore
  • Round 9 - France
  • Round 10 - England

So as you can expect, fans from all over the world flock to Hong Kong on the weekend of the tournament, which sells out months in advance.

Here is a short video with some highlights of this giant rugby party:
