HSBC Singapore Rugby 7s Returns, and It’s Bringing Back More Than Just the Sport

They say that nothing brings people together like sports does. Well, they’re probably right, because the world is coming here in the form of the HSBC Singapore Rugby Sevens 2018, and it’s going to be bigger and better than ever.

The largest celebration of rugby in Southeast Asia will take place on 28 and 29 April at the 55,000-seater National Stadium, bringing not just first-class rugby teams from over the globe, but also families closer together with a line-up of affordable family packages and attractive lifestyle deals.

Meet rugby legends in the flesh at Sevens VIP Club

Want to live through tense moments and celebrate the joy of winning in style? Then look no further than the Sevens VIP Club, a premium space equipped with a live TV feed for those who want the best. Aside from free-flow wine and soft drinks, delectable canapés, WiFi, and air-conditioning, you’ll get access to the exclusive seats on level 3 and concourse areas, which overlooks the action in full glory. What more, you’ll get a chance to meet and rub shoulders with rugby legends – those heroes whom you’ve looked up to for years.

Singapore Sevens ambassadors Ben Gollings – the highest point scorer ever in the history of HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series – and DJ Forbes, recently retired superstar and captain of the New Zealand sevens team, will also make an appearance at the Sevens VIP Club to share their most memorable stories. A perfect present for your partner’s birthday or anniversary, if we may say so ourselves.

A carnival of lifestyle promotions at retail, entertainment, tourist destinations
