Top-notch adrenaline-pumping sporting action and an exciting line-up of fun activities make this annual event a smash hit on Singapore’s sports calendar
Non-stop fun and action for all in the family at the Singapore Sevens
As the only Southeast Asian stop on the 10-leg HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series, the Singapore Sevens saw the world’s best rugby teams face off for sporting glory at the iconic National Stadium. The two-day tournament showcased the game’s exciting seven-a-side format and featured the 15 best-ranked nations in the sport, including 12-time Series champion New Zealand.
With “Show Your Colours” as the theme of the 2017 event, many spectators donned fancy dress and face paint as they cheered on their favourite teams. Between being treated to hard-hitting tackles and spectacular tries, the crowd sang and danced along to an electrifying mix of music, courtesy of live bands.
In an epic final, Canada emerged as the unexpected champions of the 2017 event, beating the United States to win their first ever HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series title. The 26-19 victory capped a thrilling tournament marked by extraordinary upsets, including Canada’s historic quarter-final victory over New Zealand, which kept spectators on the edge of their seats.
Aside from the on-field action, the Fun Zone offered a variety of interactive, family-friendly activities such as rugby trampoline jumps, video game booths and sponsor activations. After the tournament, fans made their way to Clarke Quay for a night of fun at Music After Sevens, the official after-party for the HSBC World Rugby Sevens, and exclusive F&B deals.
Expect the same heady formula of thrilling rugby action and fun fan activities when the Singapore Sevens returns to the National Stadium in April 2018.
