The 24th Bangkok International Sevens rugby tournament takes place November 9-10, 2019, at Bangkok Patana school.
Buoyed by the huge success of the recently completed Rugby World Cup in Japan and the rapidly growing interest in the shorter ‘seven-a-side’ format of the game, the Bangkok Sevens is expecting more exciting rugby and larger crowds than ever.
Tournament Director David Adamson had the foresight to ensure the event was one of the first in the region to offer and encourage the women's game alongside men’s and youth rugby.
It's a fun weekend with some serious action for competitors, with teams from as far afield as Africa and New Zealand matching up against entries from Laos, Vietnam and Thailand itself, and some serious entertainment for spectators.
Entry is free on both days and there’s a free shuttle service from and back to the BTS Bearing station.
Main sponsor is Hart Innovations, a British company leading the field of blood diagnostics. Says Adamson: “This sponsorship has enabled me and my team to attract some of the best club teams from around the world to play and showcase Rugby Sevens while developing the sport among the poorer and less rugby-skilled nations of Asia.”
These include the Vientiane Lions from Laos, whose ladies team who won the women’s tournament.
The action starts at 9am. More details at http://www.bangkoksevens.com/
