Next year’s Cathay Pacific HSBC Hong Kong Sevens will be held on Friday, 22 March to Sunday, 24 March 2013, as the seventh leg of the IRB’s expanded ten tournament HSBC Sevens World Series.

The Hong Kong Sevens is often referred to as the ‘jewel in the crown’ of the Series and in 2012 was again the largest event as nearly 120,000 spectators revelled in the atmosphere over the three days welcoming 24 international teams to this most amazing city.

Giles Morgan, Group Head of Sponsorship and Events, HSBC Holdings said, “HSBC enjoyed a highly successful return to the Hong Kong Sevens this year and we are delighted to once again join Cathay Pacific as proud co-title sponsor of the 2013 Tournament. Our historic long-term investment in rugby around the world and the Bank’s heritage here in Hong Kong means that this sponsorship remains at the very heart of our international rugby portfolio ... No doubt we can look forward to yet more high quality and entertaining sevens rugby in Hong Kong next year and indeed across the newly-expanded HSBC Sevens World Series.”

The HSBC Sevens World Series has been expanded to include a tenth leg in Argentina reflecting the strong global demand for the sport as it counts down to its Olympic Games debut in Rio de Janeiro in 2016.
