The festivities kick off with an ancillary tournament, the South East Asia 7s, on Friday, April 15, at Yio Chu Kang Stadium with seven countries competing. Southeast Asian Games champion, Philippines, will take on Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Laos, Brunei and two Singapore sides in the men’s competition, while the women’s tournament features favourites Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Laos and Philippines. Both the men’s and women’s finals will then be played during the Pool stages of the HSBC World Rugby Singapore Sevens on Saturday, April 16, at the National Stadium.
The HSBC Singapore Sevens is the eighth leg of the 2015-2016 HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series and Fiji is looking to defend its Singapore crown which it won in 2006. In addition to world-class rugby, the two-day HSBC Singapore Sevens promises great entertainment as British superstar DJ Pete Tong will play an exclusive set after the conclusion of the Pool stages on day one, while local band Shirlyn & The UnXpected will rock the stadium on day two. Also, happening on Sunday is the first schoolboy Under 14 Schools Sevens final to be played at the National Stadium featuring ACS Independent and Raffles Institution.
Over the weekend, the family-friendly Fun Zone awaits rugby fans young and old. The young ones can try their hand at the ‘Rugby Superhero’ challenge stations while the young at heart can impress their friends and families at the ‘Skills Challenge Zone’. Parents can also enjoy some rugby action while their little ones are thoroughly entertained at the ‘Kids Drop Off Zone’. A pair of return air tickets to Fiji, courtesy of Fiji Airways, will also be given to the best dressed spectator each day, so expect to see plenty of rugby tribes all dressed up for the occasion.
Spectators to this weekend’s HSBC Singapore Sevens can also take the shuttle bus service from the National Stadium to Clarke Quay for the rugby after-party on Saturday and Sunday nights by showing their tickets.
Tickets to the HSBC Singapore Sevens range from S$50 to S$150 (prices exclude booking fees) and organisers have just announced that more Category One S$150 tickets will be made available from 14 April 2016 due to surging demand. All spectators can also enjoy a host of benefits and discounts at partner outlets islandwide with their tickets. Information and online ticket sales are available on www.singapore7s.sg
