But, before the rugby action gets underway, ticket holders can take their loved ones to Sentosa for a day or month out in the sun. Have a Hawaiian feast at Ola Beach Club, head over to AJ Hackett for a swinging good time, take up some FlowRiding at Wavehouse and end the night at FOC Sentosa for some exquisite Spanish cuisine.
David Lim, Executive Chairman and Managing Director of Rugby Singapore, said: “The Singapore Rugby Carnival is such a great initiative to get the whole of Singapore engaged with the HSBC Singapore Rugby Sevens. Whilst everyone may not realise they are a rugby fan yet, the ticket-holder benefits across restaurants and cafes, bars, tourist attractions, and retail hotspots in Singapore provide that connection between the public and biggest celebration of rugby in Southeast Asia. You can see from the list of participating partners that these are all local favourites so it makes sense for fans to purchase their tickets early and reap the rewards. For those who utilise the offers, they are practically going to the Singapore Sevens for free.”
Rugby-themed activations will make their way around Singapore at various weekends until the event to offer members of the public a taste of the sport and enjoy an array of fun activities, access discounted tickets and redemption for existing tickets, and a chance to meet rugby legends and celebrities. With popcorn, candy floss and fun activities, all for free, the Singapore Rugby Carnival roadshows are a must for those curious about the sport.”
