May 1 2017, DUBAI UAE: Tickets for the biggest sporting and social event of the year are now on sale online – and this is a party not to be missed. The Emirates Airline Dubai Rugby Sevens will take place from 30 November to 2December at The Sevens Stadium – the first event in the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series and the HSBC World Rugby Women’s Sevens Series.
Over 100,000 fans and 4,500 players from all over the world are expected to descend on The Sevens Stadium over the long weekend and with a fantastic array of entertainment and activities lined up, this is going to be yet another unforgettable three-day rugby festival.
The ever-growing Invitation Tournament will see over 260 teams from all over the world battling it out on all eight rugby pitches and on the netball courts, making 2017 the largest tournament to-date.
On-pitch entertainment and musicians will make sure everyone is in the party mood, with singing and dancing in the stands as fans cheer on their favourite team and support friends and family in the Invitation Tournament. As soon as action on the pitch ends, the famous Rugby Rock comes alive with a number of bands and artists performing on stage making sure everyone dances the night away in the usual Dubai Rugby Sevens manner!
Free entry for those under 12 remains, making this a great family weekend; kids will be spoilt for choice with a wide variety of entertainment options available in the village including a dedicated area for teenagers, fun and games for the younger ones and a crèche for the very little ones.
New for 2017, the Reserved Seating offering is expanding with an exclusive food and beverage village at the top of the stand and direct access from the seats. Fans should enquire early as this offer is sure to sell out quickly.
Tournament Director, Jim Fitzsimons, said: “We are always looking at ways to ensure that the sporting and social event of the year keeps getting bigger and better and this year is no exception. As we enter our 48th year, fans, players and families can expect another thrilling weekend with something for everyone.”
