Now in its 41st year, the 2016 Cathay Pacific HSBC Hong Kong Sevens is the year’s most anticipated sporting event in the city. Every year Rugbymania consumes Hong Kong, as families and rugby enthusiasts from all over the world descend on the city to celebrate the action-packed event.

Hong Kong will be the host of the seventh round of the global Rugby Sevens circuit, taking place from April 8-10, 2016. This year will see even more satellite events throughout the city, all celebrating Hong Kong culture, sports, dining and nightlife. 

As the city gears up for Rugbymania, the Hong Kong Tourism Board is working overtime to introduce all kinds of fantastic new experiences. One of the highlights is a Rugby Sevens Bar Tram, which will showcase Hong Kong’s hottest nightlife destinations while offering visitors a ride on board one of the city's most iconic and historical means of transportation.

The Bar Tram promises to be an exciting way to spend an evening, running from the Western Market Terminus in Sheung Wan to Causeway Bay Terminus with stops in popular bar hubs including Central and Wan Chai along the way. The tram’s celebratory atmosphere lends itself to socialising and offers a unique experience to mix and mingle with like-minded revelers. 

Operating from April 6-10, three party trams will run a total of 10-12 journeys a night. Each tram can accommodate 30 passengers, and guests can spread throughout the double-decker seating and open-air rooftops. As an added bonus, Guests will also receive a free guide that shortlists some of Hong Kong’s hottest hangouts, so when guests hop off the tram, they’ll know exactly where to head next.  

Those who want to secure a spot can choose their preferred date and time during registration from 10am (Hong Kong Time) on March 21, 2016 onwards. Operating on a first-come, first-served basis, admission is free and comes with two complimentary drinks, including beer.
