Singapore Cricket Club International Rugby 7s returns

with attractive family ticket packages and single-day ticket concessions in

November 2013

SINGAPORE, 14 August 2013 – The Singapore Cricket Club International Rugby 7s (‘The SCC 7s’) returns in 2013 with new top-class professional club teams and attractive new family ticketing packages and single-day ticket concessions that promise to deliver the same brand of exciting 7s rugby that has established the SCC 7s as one of the premier international club tournaments in the world.

The 66th edition of the SCC 7s will feature 20 world-class teams from around the globe and will take place from 1-3 November at the Padang. Last year’s thrilling final saw Daveta from Fiji win its second straight Ablitt Cup, the winner’s trophy that is named after Mr. Bernard Ablitt, President of the Singapore Cricket Club from 1938-1939. Daveta, who have entertained spectators at the tournament with Fijian rugby flair for the past 20 years, are looking to win a hat-trick of titles with personnel largely drawn from the current Fijian National squad.

Making their welcome return after a year’s break will be the French National team, who will be looking to use the tournament as a platform to launch and develop players for the International Rugby Board (IRB) World Sevens Series.

Singapore Cricket Club President Col. (Ret) Gurcharan Singh paid tribute to the tireless volunteers behind the success of the 66-year-old tournament, saying, “The SCC 7s since its start in 1947 has been a part of the very fabric of Singapore Rugby and is run on the passion that the Singapore Cricket Club Rugby section brings to the Club’s heritage in organising this annual festival of rugby, not only for the love of the sport but also for what it brings to our wider local community.”

The ‘friendly sevens’ will offer a revamped spectator experience this year, with features that will continue to make this tournament an event for the entire family, as well as showcasing rugby talent from around the world.

Core to this will be the introduction of single-day tickets and attractive package pricing for the family for this year’s SCC 7s. Families will now be able to purchase two adult tickets and two ‘concession’ tickets in a package of $150 for a three-day pass or $75 per day, whilst single-day tickets are being offered at only $15, $25 and $35 for the Friday, Saturday and Sunday sessions of the tournament respectively.“We have taken note of the feedback received from all of our stakeholders over ticket pricing and have decided to offer tickets which will make this world-class event affordable and accessible to everyone, and most especially to families, as we are after all the friendly sevens!” added Marc Lansonneur, chairman of the SCC 7s organising committee.
