Tickets for what is widely regarded as the greatest Rugby Sevens party on earth, the Cathay Pacific / Credit Suisse Hong Kong Sevens, will go on public sale on Saturday, 22 January 2011.
The price of a three-day adult event ticket in 2011 will be HK$1,250, with children’s tickets priced at HK$300 for youth aged 12 and under.
After an initial pre-sale period to local Rugby Clubs, Hong Kong Rugby Football Union (HKRFU) Stakeholders and official Overseas Ticketing Agents, the HKRFU will stage the public ticket sale.
Trevor Gregory, Chairman of the HKRFU, said, “The HKRFU expects very strong demand for Sevens tickets in 2011 and like rugby fans around the world we look forward to another outstanding Cathay Pacific / Credit Suisse Hong Kong Sevens next March.”
When considering tickets sold through local rugby clubs and other HKRFU stakeholders, 75% of all Sevens tickets are sold in Hong Kong. The HKRFU has confirmed that a minimum of 5,000 tickets will be made available for the local public to purchase on 22 January. This includes a limited number of children’s tickets for kids aged 12 and under. The HKRFU will again use Hong Kong Ticketing to sell tickets.
To ensure the widest possible distribution of tickets individual purchases will be restricted to a maximum of two (2) per person in any combination of adult or child tickets.
Overseas fans can purchase tickets through the appointed Official Travel Agents or Cathay Pacific, the co-title sponsor and official airline of the Cathay Pacific / Credit Suisse Hong Kong Sevens. Cathay Pacific and the Official Travel Agents offer a variety of packages including event tickets, travel and accommodation.
The Cathay Pacific / Credit Suisse Hong Kong Sevens 2011 will be held from Friday, 25 March to Sunday, 27 March 2011 at the Hong Kong Stadium.
