Fans from around the world will get another opportunity to be a part of the unrivalled excitement, colour and action of the 2017 HSBC Sydney7s with General Public tickets going on sale today for the now three-day event from February 3-5 at Allianz Stadium in Sydney.

Following the success of the 2016 tournament, which was sold out nine days out from kick off, fans are encouraged to act quickly to secure their place for the hottest event of the summer.

After “Going Global” last year to celebrate the international flavour of the tournament, this year fans are encouraged to “Go Colourful” and adorn their most vibrant and eclectic colours to add to the carnival atmosphere.

In 2017, the HSBC Sydney7s will include an official leg of the HSBC Women’s Sevens World Series, giving Australia’s golden girls the opportunity to compete in a World Rugby-sanctioned tournament on home soil for the first time as they look to defend their World Series title.

The HSBC Sydney7s will be the first appearance on home turf for the Qantas Australian Women’s Sevens team at a World Rugby event, since their triumph in Rio, where it is anticipated they will be greeted by one of the biggest crowds in the history of the HSBC Women’s Sevens World Series.

With the tournament now a three-day Sevens carnival, fans can take advantage of the family friendly ticket pricing for the Friday and see our world number one women’s team begin their campaign.

Returning for the 2017 men’s tournament will be Olympic Gold medallists Fiji, as well as Rugby mad nations such as New Zealand, South Africa, England, Kenya and Japan to mark the truly global event.

Our Qantas Australian Men’s Sevens team will be aiming to go one better in 2017 after falling inches short of the inaugural HSBC Sydney7s title in an epic 2016 decider against arch rivals New Zealand.

NSW Minister for Trade, Tourism and Major Events and Minister for Sport, Stuart Ayres said: “The Sydney7s promises to be bigger and better in 2017, and I encourage everyone to book their tickets today and get to the Harbour City for a festival of fast, running rugby. The atmosphere in the ground was incredible and with the Women’s event added it will allow even more fans to experience the colour and action of Rugby Sevens,” Mr Ayres said.

“The Sydney7s has been secured for the State by the NSW Government through its tourism and major events agency, Destination NSW. This year’s event provided a huge boost to the local visitor economy, attracting more than 17,000 domestic and international overnight visitors to NSW, with a total visitor spend of over $10 million.”

ARU CEO Bill Pulver: “On the back of its debut at the Rio Olympics, the sport of Rugby Sevens has exploded across the globe and nowhere more so than here in the Pacific region with the Gold Medal success of the Qantas Australian Women’s Sevens team and the Fijian men’s team.

“Those triumphs provided two of the most memorable moments of the Rio Olympic Games and now fans get the opportunity to come and experience what Rugby Sevens is all about here in Sydney at the 2017 HSBC Sydney7s.

“There is no other sporting event quite like it in terms of combining the excitement of the on-field action with the atmosphere in the crowd and the buzz of activity in and around the Stadium precinct. It is the ultimate day out for the family or a group of friends, no matter how much you follow the Rugby.”

CEO of HSBC Australia, Tony Cripps, said: “As title partner of the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series and the HSBC Women’s Sevens World Series, HSBC is dedicated to supporting and celebrating the growth of Rugby Sevens.

“Following a landmark year for the sport, the upcoming series and the HSBC Sydney7s have all the ingredients to deliver the most exciting program yet. We look forward to playing our role in the growth of one of the most exciting, dynamic and ambitious sports in the world.”

In the coming months, event organisers will announce additional entertainment outside of the action on the main pitch that will add to carnival of Sevens activity.

Tourists travelling to Sydney from interstate and overseas will have the opportunity to take in what Australia’s largest city has to offer, including Sydney Harbour, Sydney’s amazing coastline, Bondi Beach, Taronga Zoo and the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House.

Tickets go on sale from 12pm AEDT via Ticketek.
