New Look: HSBC Sevens Village Celebrates Role Of Community at the Sevens

April 5, 2019 Sports No Comments Email Email

The Hong Kong community is an integral part of the success of the Cathay Pacific/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens and as a proud active partner of the game, HSBC is committed to bringing the spirit of rugby to the wider community. For 2019, HSBC presents the much-anticipated HSBC Sevens Village, which was already enjoying tremendous popularity and located on the doorstep of the world class tournament. Together with the  PayMe from HSBC activities starting from 29 March, the HSBC Sevens Village is a great place to celebrate the relationship between the people of Hong Kong and their tournament.

HSBC Sevens Village

Offering the fantastic array of entertainment, family activities and food & beverages that the people of Hong Kong have come to expect from the Village, HSBC is bringing a brand-new look and feel to the HSBC Sevens Village for 2019. From live screenings of almost every match of the Cathay Pacific/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens, to various rugby challenges in the HSBC Try Rugby Zone, there is something for everyone to take part in, including the Try Rugby coaching clinics, face painting and colouring walls for children. The HSBC Sevens Village will be open to the public free of charge, from 5 to 7 April, at the Indian Recreation Club located opposite the Hong Kong Stadium.

Key highlights

  • A new selection of some of Hong Kong’s best-known food vendors to keep your hunger at bay, from Pizza Express to XTC Gelato
  • Find out if you have what it takes to become the next Sevens legend with our mini games and challenges in the HSBC Try Rugby Zone
  • Children are welcome to come sign-up for the HSBC Try Rugby Coaching Clinics led by the Hong Kong Rugby Union
  • Returning crowd favourite, get your face painted with your favourite team’s flag, and show off your artistic skills at the all new colouring wall

HSBC Try Rugby Zone

HSBC’s grassroots programmes across the world are accelerating the development of rugby talent for the next generation. The HSBC Try Rugby programme is a prime example of this and is a scheme that paved the way for other HSBC rugby initiatives around the world. Rolling into its second year, it has introduced the game to over 30,000 children. The HSBC Try Rugby Zone in the HSBC Sevens Village welcomes everyone to come and give rugby a go in an environment tailored for children, and with a number of fun and exciting games.
