As part of the ongoing celebrations of 40 years of Sevens in Hong Kong, the Hong Kong Rugby Football Unions Community Foundation has unveiled details of the first ever Hong Kongs Rugby Spirit light show as part of the International Commerce Centre (ICC) Light and Music Show.

From 20-29 March 2015, Hong Kong residents and the thousands of tourists arriving for the world-famous Cathay Pacific/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens (27-29 March) will be dazzled by even more evening entertainment as the entire 490-metre high International Commerce Centre faades will be lit up with a special synchronized light show.

Themed Hong Kongs Rugby Spirit, the 2-minute show will be played twice nightly at 19:45 and 21:00, immediately after ICCs ordinary light show.

The show has been especially created to highlight the attributes shared by both rugby and Hong Kong: determination, teamwork, respect and pride.

This year marks the first time that rugby has been featured on the award-winning ICC Light and Music Show.

For the past four decades, the renowned Hong Kong Sevens has helped to put Hong Kong in the international sporting spotlight. In 2015, this will be truer than ever before as we mark the anniversary of 40 years of Sevens in Hong Kong with a spectacular themed light show on the faades of Hong Kongs iconic International Commerce Centre. The HKRFU Community Foundation would like to express our sincere thanks to ICC and Sun Hung Kai Properties for their support, said Robbie McRobbie General Manager of Rugby and Commercial at the Hong Kong Rugby Football Union.

Cris Fung, General Manager of Retail Marketing & Customer Relations, Sun Hung Kai Real Estate Agency, added, The ICC Light and Music Show, a gift to the people of Hong Kong and visitors, has undergone various endeavours. We are delighted to collaborate with HKRFU Community Foundation to celebrate 40 Years of Sevens in Hong Kong together with the world. We hope the light show can spread energy from the sport of Rugby and cheer for our city.

The ICC Light and Music Show is a LED light show that won the Guinness World Record for The Largest Light and Sound Show on a Single Building.

Recommended viewing locations for the show include the waterfront promenades from Sheung Wan to Causeway Bay including Tamar Park, Sun Yat Sen Memorial Park and the terraces (Podium 3 and 4) of the IFC mall.

ICC is the tallest skyscraper in Hong Kong and will allow the global audience of sevens fans and local community as well as thousands of tourists and visitors to the city to experience this one-of-a- kind attraction alongside Hong Kongs unparalleled vibrant nightscape.
