 After an initial pre-sale period to Hong Kong Rugby clubs and stakeholders, the Hong Kong Rugby Football Union (HKRFU) has confirmed that 3,000 tickets to the Cathay Pacific/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens 2013 are now available for sale via public ballot.

Registration for the ballot will be open for one month.

Tthe HKRFU expects that after the completion of the pre-sales period to clubs and stakeholders and the public ballot, 92% of event tickets will have been retailed in Hong Kong, with a further 6% reserved for overseas ticketing agents and 2% reserved for the participating teams.

To ensure the most equitable and widespread distribution of the remaining tickets the HKRFU is allowing ballot participants the opportunity to apply to purchase tickets on a per-day basis, (attending on their choice of the Friday, Saturday or Sunday), creating up to 9,000 opportunities for those participating in the public ballot, to secure access to tickets. Ballot applicants can also apply to attend all three days of the event.

Mr Trevor Gregory, Chairman of the HKRFU said, “The HKRFU is pleased to confirm that the public sale for tickets to the 2014 Cathay Pacific/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens will again be held via public ballot. Last year’s process was felt to offer the most convenient and equitable manner for the public and the ballot was well received by the local community. With the increasing growth in numbers in Hong Kong Rugby and demand far outstripping the capacity of our present stadium, an increased allocation of tickets has again been provided to members of local rugby clubs and HKRFU stakeholders, with an accompanying reduction in the number of tickets for the public sale. By making the remaining tickets for the public available for purchase on a daily basis the HKRFU has trebled the opportunities to gain access to the event with 9,000 daily tickets being allocated for the public through the ballot.”

Each applicant is allowed only one entry per person per event day in the ballot. Each successful applicant can purchase a maximum of two tickets per day. Application may be made for a variety of ticket categories including one adult ticket, two adult tickets or one adult and one child ticket. Entrants must be Hong Kong Identification cardholders and 18 years or over.

Once registration is complete, a distinct and separate ballot will be held for each day of the tournament. Ballot applicants may be successful across multiple entries.

Registration is now open and will close at 17:00 on Wednesday, 15 January 2014.

Applicants can register for the public ballot via the official Cathay Pacific/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens website.

The ballot will be held on Tuesday, 21 January 2014, with winners notified electronically on the same day.

 Collection of tickets will be from 15 – 17 March 2014 at the Hong Kong Stadium Box Office. Successful applicants will receive notification by 17:00 on 21 January and will then have one week to pay for their tickets (by 17:00 on 28 January).

Ticket prices for the individual day categories are set at HK$200 for adult tickets and HK$50 for children’s tickets for Friday and HK$650 for adults and HK$50 for children’s tickets respectively for Saturday and Sunday of the event. Each successful ticket application will be levied with an administration fee of HK$50.

All interested spectators are reminded that only tickets sold through the official ticketing agencies for the event or through the Hong Kong Rugby Football Union member Clubs and public ballot are ensured to be genuine. Those purchasing tickets from non-official channels should be aware that doing so leaves them at risk.

 The 2014 Cathay Pacific/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens will be held from March 28th to 30th at the Hong Kong Stadium.
