The non-stop action and entertainment of the HSBC Sydney 7s continues in 2019 with tickets now on sale to the iconic tournament that lights up Sydney’s summer with a multicultural festival of Rugby from February 1-3.
Teams from all over the world will descend on Spotless Stadium at Sydney Olympic Park to battle it out in the annual HSBC Men’s and Women’s Sevens World Series events.
After achieving the dream double for Australia in 2018, Australia’s Qantas Australian Men’s and Women’s Sevens teams will be out to defend their titles against a pack of hungry challengers from New Zealand, Fiji, England and South Africa.
The precinct will be transformed into a Rugby festival with live bands, rides, interactive entertainment, the kids zone, and plenty of places to eat and drink, coupled with the best Rugby Sevens athletes from across the world doing battle just a year out from the Olympic Games in Tokyo.
Fan-favourites that have become synonymous with the HSBC Sydney 7s will return with Dance Cam, Kiss Cam, The Gun show, and Karaoke all to feature again in the 2019 edition.
There will also be some new additions and surprises to be announced over the coming months.
The doors will be thrown opened on Friday 1 February with free entry for day one of the tournament which will feature some of the biggest names in the sport including Emilee Cherry, Charlotte Caslick, Emma Tonegato, Portia Woodman (NZ) and Ghislaine Landry (CAN).
Rugby Australia Chief Executive Raelene Castle said: “The HSBC Sydney Sevens is an event which offers the best of all worlds. On the field it is Rugby at its best, with some of the finest athletes in the world battling it out in a fast, exciting and explosive format of the game. Off the field it is non-stop entertainment in an unrivalled international carnival atmosphere.”
NSW Minister for Tourism and Major Events Adam Marshall said: “Western Sydney is the home of some of Australia’s biggest sporting events and most passionate sports fans, who will create an incredible atmosphere at Spotless Stadium.
“The Sydney 7s is synonymous with three days of festivities and Western Sydney hotels, restaurants and attractions are set to reap the benefits with visitors travelling from around Australia and the world to support their team.
“I encourage everyone to get their tickets early and start planning an extended stay.”
Tickets are on sale now and available through Ticketek.
