Singapore will host the HSBC Singapore Rugby Sevens on April 9-10, in a step towards the return of large-scale live events in the country.
The tournament, to be held at the National Stadium at the Singapore Sports Hub, will welcome top rugby sevens players from 16 countries such as Fiji and New Zealand.
Singapore will be the fifth of nine tournaments in the men’s HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series 2022, with Dubai hosting the earlier two events in November and December last year.
Fans of the sport will be able to catch the action live, and organisers are working closely with relevant authorities to adhere to Singapore’s safe management measures. Tickets that were purchased for the 2020 edition remain valid for the 2022 event.
HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series director Doug Langley said: “All stakeholders are working hard in partnership to deliver a spectacular, safe and secure event and the players and teams are looking forward to getting back on the pitch and showcasing the speed, skill and thrills of world-class rugby sevens in Singapore.”
