Rugby 7s is right around the corner, and it’s bringing a weekend of non-stop partying with it
The South Stand is ready, the pitch is ready, the players are ready—are you ready? Because the Cathay Pacific / HSBC Hong Kong Sevens is almost here, and you need to be prepared. Not just for the non-stop tries and ridiculous antics, but for what comes after, the legendary after-party, hosted by yours truly.
The Official Hong Kong Sevens After Party at Lan Kwai Fong is a once-a-year extravaganza you don’t want to miss, where the famous Lan Kwai Fong streets are transformed into a rugby lovers’ paradise. There will be games, live entertainment and plenty of photo opportunities around every corner, last year we even had a parade!
And of course, there are a whole host of other exciting events happening around the city for Rugby 7s, here are a few of our favourites. And keep an eye on the official Rugby 7s website for more exciting events happening next month.
You don’t even need to be in the stadium to have a killer time this Sevens, just head to Sevens Central at the Central Harbourfront. The gates open at noon, and you can spend the day watching the matches live on the big screen, or chilling out to some tribute bands, like Pink, Queen, Oasis and even The Rolling Stones (and it’s all free!). Then when you’re done, head over to Lan Kwai Fong to party the night away.
Sevens Central is happening 6 – 7 April, 2019 at Central Harbourfront, from 12pm – 10pm. Entrance is free, and you can find more information here.
