Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Monday, 10 December  2007

The Hong Kong Rugby Football Union held its official Public Ticket Sale for the Cathay Pacific/Credit Suisse Hong Kong Sevens 2008 on Saturday at the Hong Kong Stadium.

As expected, public demand for tickets was high with several hundred people queuing overnight and early this morning. By 7:00am more than 2,500 ticket buyers had already joined the queue. All 5,000 event tickets were sold by 3:00pm.

Upon the advice of the Hong Kong Police and Hong Kong Stadium management, the stadium gates were opened to the queue members at 7:30am. Ticket sales began at the official starting time of 11:00am and were completely sold out in four hours.

Mr Allan Payne, Executive Director of the Hong Kong Rugby Football Union, said It was a great turn-out today and as ever we are most thankful for the support from the general public and our rugby community. We understand that some people will be disappointed not to get their tickets but this is the unavoidable, but unfortunate, outcome of the popularity of the Hong Kong Sevens. The ticket sale ran very smoothly and we want to thank the local public for their patience and good humour.

The Cathay Pacific/Credit Suisse Hong Kong Sevens 2008, which is one of the most popular and exciting Sevens tournaments in the word, will be held from Friday, March 28, to Sunday, March 30, at the Hong Kong Stadium.
