Hong Kong Rugby Sevens: How to Party like a True Rugby Fan in Hong Kong

Hong Kong Rugby Sevens, rugby sports

Apart from the usual annual holidays that we Asians celebrate, sports tournaments are one of the so-called holidays that we are excited for, and it is a huge deal for us. In the Philippines, we celebrate the boxing and basketball tournament, F1 Race in Singapore, and in Hong Kong -- the annual Hong Kong Rugby Sevens, and we never joke about it.


Why is it a HUGE deal?




Hello?! It is THE HONG KONG RUGBY SEVENS, and most of the world's rugby players all of the world are gathered to compete for this year's title. So yeah, IT IS A HUGE DEAL!


It is also a time of the year for most of us sports fanatics to cheer with our favorite teams and players, plus think about how much amount of booze and sports foods we going to consume with our AWESOME FRIENDS!!!


So, aside from the overflowing beers and snacks, and your coolest crews with you, think about how many sweaty hot guys and girls are also cheering their voices out, and that is one hell of HOT.


Another rule -- never go in just wearing your favorite team's jerseys.. Uughh that is too embarrassing.


You can wear anything -- grab those Superman and Batman costume, or tell your squad you dress-up like flight attendants, Geisha, a rubber duckies, or a bunch of strawberries! ANYTHING!


Hong Kong Sevens is the time of the year in Asia that you can be creative, and wear whatever you fancy. It is like celebrating the Halloween -- yeah Hong Kong Sevens is the Halloween during summer.
