Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Send to Friend ASIA Travel Latest Travel News Thursday, 13 December 2012

The Hong Kong Rugby Football Union (HKRFU) has made changes to the way it sells the public seats for the Cathay Pacific/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens.

 Under the new plan, 4,000 tickets will be made available for sale via public ballot. After a seven-week registration period, the ballot will be held on Thursday, 7 February 2013.

Mr Trevor Gregory, Chairman of the HKRFU said, “The HKRFU is pleased to confirm that tickets for next year’s Hong Kong Sevens will be held via public ballot. The change in retailing method is in keeping with our commitment to ensure that tickets are distributed as conveniently and equitably as possible. With a seven week registration period we believe that all interested spectators will be able to register at their convenience and that the ‘luck of the draw’ will ensure the fairest spread of tickets to the public.”

The registration window for the public ballot started today (13 December 2012) at 09:00, and concludes at 17:00 on Monday, 4 February 2013. Applicants can register for the public ballot via the Hong Kong Rugby Football Union website as well as via the official Cathay Pacific/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens website.

To ensure the widest possible distribution of tickets in the local community, each patron will be limited to purchase a maximum of two tickets. Each applicant must be aged 18 or above and can apply for a maximum of two tickets in any combination of adult and children’s tickets. Children’s tickets (age 12 or under) are available in limited quantities and will only be sold while supplies last.

Each applicant will also be required to verify their local residency with valid Hong Kong ID card details and postal address for registered mail or courier services.

The ticket ballot draw will be held on Thursday, 7 February 2013. Successful applicants will then have two weeks to pay for their tickets (8-22 February). In the case of tickets allocated through the draw remaining unpurchased after the expiry of the payment period, a re-draw will be held on Monday, 25 February.

Ticket distribution will start on Friday, 1 March 2013 via collection from the Hong Kong Rugby Football Union offices or by registered mail.

Ticket prices remain fixed at the 2012 tournament levels with an adult, 3-day ticket priced at HK$1,500 while children’s tickets are retailed at HK$150 for youth aged 12 and under on or before March 22, 2013. A HK$100 administration fee (one per each successful ballot application) will be levied.

To further enhance ticket security, a new international supplier with experience in printing secure bank notes is producing the tickets for the 2013 tournament. Increased security features will be incorporated into the ticket itself with handheld scanners being used at the Hong Kong Stadium gates for the first time for the Cathay Pacific/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens in 2013.

With the hosting of 28 international teams for the first time in the event’s 38-year history, the 2013 Cathay Pacific/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens promises to be the biggest Hong Kong Sevens ever.

The 2013 Cathay Pacific/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens will be held from March 22 – 24 at the Hong Kong Stadium.
