Rugby 7s captains unveil new series with Dubai stunt


In a thrilling prelude to the Emirates Dubai 7s, captains of the world's top rugby 7s teams took the game to new heights to mark the start of the newly revamped HSBC SVNS Series in Dubai this week.

Perched on the iconic 'One Za'abeel', the world's longest cantilevered building, the captains were harnessed and positioned along the length of the record breaking cantilever and filmed to capture the teams representing their countries from this new Dubai perspective.

Showcasing the city’s stunning skyline, the launch of the HSBC SNVNS series, and the 2023 edition of the Emirates Dubai 7s, this first-of-its-kind stunt sets the stage for an unforgettable weekend of rugby action and off-field activities at the much-anticipated festival.

The Emirates Dubai 7s is set to kick off this Friday, December 1 and run until Sunday, December 3.

With Monday declared a public holiday, festival organisers have extended the Sunday night festivities from 6:30 pm until 11:45 pm.

Spectators can look forward to live music and DJ sets until the extended closing time, while the Rugby Rocks after party will keep the fun going until late, with even more crowd favourite singalongs and guitar band tributes.

Similarly, invitational teams in WodOn3, Rebound, Rugby, Netball and Cricket can celebrate their wins as a team late into the evening without worrying about commitments on Monday.

Tickets are available from AED 425, and for only AED 125 more, sports fans and festivalgoers can take advantage of the final chance to buy a three-day pass and immerse themselves in a full weekend of exhilarating matches, entertainment, music, food and family experiences.
