Get into the spirit at the Cape Town Rugby Sevens

Rugby fever is at an all-time high in South Africa and the HSBC Cape Town Sevens give locals and visitors in the city yet another opportunity to support their favourite teams. This year’s event will be held over three days and will feature a women’s event for the first time, adding even further to the excitement.

The event will take place at Cape Town Stadium from Friday 13th to Sunday 15th December 2019.


It’ll be a jam-packed three days of rugby madness—with the Women’s Sevens Series tournament and the 16-team HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series Tournament both taking place.

Local fans will be going all out to support the Blitzbokke, our national Sevens team, with facepaint, flags and full South African regalia at its finest.

The Cape Town tournament is second on the schedule for the tournament series which kicks off in Dubai and is considered by those in the know to be one of the most competitive tournaments in the series.

After a hard-fought weekend, the best team will win the cup and the remaining teams will play for tournament points that are used to determine the overall Series winner after the end of the ten tournaments.

Tickets to the event are highly-prized but if you’re a traveller then there are several packages that might suit your needs. Visit to find out more.
