The three-day Rugby Sevens is back for its 47th year and this year looks like it will be better than ever! With the world’s top players hitting the pitch at the Sevens Stadium for the very first time due to the Sevens’ inclusion at the official Olympic Games next month, this is a tournament you don’t want to miss!
Matches will be taking place on eight rugby pitches and have a record-breaking number of 280 teams taking part. If the matches aren’t enough to convince you, there are on-pitch music and dancers set to amp up the vibe for fans, to allow you to cheer on your team with gusto! Later, once the matched have been played, the Rugby Rock is set to charge the atmosphere further, featuring bands and artists to rile up the crowd once again.
There’ll be plenty of entertainment for teens and kids as well, such as the Virgin Radio Dubai Teen Zone, while a dedicated family area in the stands ensures an amazing experience, whatever your age!
Tickets to the event will be complimentary on the first day and thereafter priced reasonably for a wallet-friendly weekend of epic proportions. In addition, special reserved seating can be handled online for children under 12. Emirates Skywards Members can get tickets using air miles online at www.emirates.com.
