“Can get a little crazy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

The sevens seems to be more about the party and the drinking rather than the sport. Lots of people dressed up wearing wigs and men wearing lady clothes (yes the British go hard) and drinking heavily. But overall, great atmosphere and lots of fun!

“not to be missed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

It is an institution. Hong Kong's biggest party! Drinking never stops, lot's of new friends made and people take the Monday off work to recover. And - you get to see some pretty good rugby too!

“Probably more exciting for younger people!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

Loved the colours and festive atmosphere and some of the rugby - disliked the chaos, lots of drunk people everywhere and the seating which is first come first served often meaning you sit high in the stands without a view - would prefer the option to reserve a seat. Definitely more of a student venue - glad I've been and seen it - wouldnt go again!

“Game Time!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

Game Time Rugby Time! It was a wondering experience getting to be present during the annual rugby tournament that’s always held in Hong Kong. This attraction is one of the sports complexes that’s in the city and a great venue to go to when you want to be in your rugby attire. I heard that we were going to check this place out so I really bought a cute rugby outfit because it’s the best way to flaunt the outfit without being judged for being a poser. It was a fun experience with friends and our tour guide was active enough to have booked tickets here. I grew up in Asia but rugby wasn’t really something that I get to go to, this was my first time actually and I had a blast! Even if half of the time I didn’t understand the rules. It was more like soccer I think. But the place, I have nothing negative to say about it. A definite tourist place to visit.

“A 4 day party that is not for Rugby fans alone!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

Probably my attendance at the HK Sevens for most years since 1990, gives some indication that I like this event! Usually best to go with friends and family, this 4 day event is often described as a party with some serious world class rugby as a side show. Feel free to come in fancy dress and take your chances in the South Stand where the crowd is raucous to say the least. Of course, the South Stand is not for the faint hearted or the really serious rugby fans, and if you venture there, be prepared to get wet as most times it will be beer and not water that rains down on the crowd!

Despite the enormous success of this event, in the last few years, it has perhaps begun to lose some of the sparkle that made the HK 7's so famous. The inevitable tighter security, the increased controls on crowd behaviour, and the difficulty to move around the ground to meet and greet old friends from around the world, detract from the event overall but fortunately the rugby remains exiting and continues to draw the crowds. I shall be there again in 2014!
