Cigna Becomes an Official Sponsor of Hong Kong Rugby Sevens

Cigna has signed a three-year agreement with the Hong Kong Rugby Sevens to be an Official Sponsor from 2017 to 2019.

 For the past two years, Cigna has supported the premier sporting event as a Partner.

Commenting on the sponsorship, Patrick Graham, CEO, Asia Pacific said, “We are thrilled to be continuing and extending our partnership with the Hong Kong Sevens this year – a series that has grown in popularity across Asia and attracts global as well as regional fans. Cigna is excited to be one of the first health insurance Sponsors of this iconic event.”

As a healthcare solutions provider and Hong Kong Sevens Sponsor, Cigna has initiated a campaign aimed at helping fans stay healthy during the event, “The Cigna Sevens Survival Guide”.

The campaign includes videos to be aired at the games and during the activation period, an interactive game with prizes and a rugby clinic taught by expert coaches for young rugby players.

Cigna will promote the 'Dos and Don’ts' on how fans can stay fit and healthy during the Hong Kong Sevens.

“We are pleased to partner with such a strong global and regional brand as the Hong Kong Sevens and have built a campaign aimed at reminding our audience in a fun way to stay healthy while they watch the rugby. We hope the digital game, the videos and the practice clinic generate enjoyment --and maybe even some healthy behavior,” said DJ Choi, Chief Marketing Officer, International Markets, Cigna.

The two 15-second videos were inspired by the fun costumes of spectators from Sevens of the past to showcase a Survival Guide of Dos and Don’ts for fans to stay fit and healthy. Dos include:

· Drink water
· Eat healthy food
· Wear sunscreen
· Stand up and move periodically
· Seek medical help if needed

Cigna will also host a booth at Hong Kong Sevens Central at Chater Garden, Central from 3rd to 6th April, as well as at the main event from 7th to 9th April in the stadium.

 The Chater Garden booth will feature an interactive “Sevens Survival Game”, a fun way to learn the Dos and Don’ts of staying healthy during the Sevens. Players will compete to win tickets for the Sevens, by running on a virtual reality “Rugby Avenue”, dodging unhealthy, and collecting healthy, items to score on the leaderboard.

Also during the activation period, Cigna will host a ‘Rugby Clinic’ over three days between 4th and 6th April at Hong Kong Sevens Central at Chater Garden, where expert coaching through clinics and demonstrations will be held for families and children.
