Emirates Airline Dubai Rugby Sevens- the party starts now!
September 28 2014, DUBAI UAE Rugby Sevens fun will kick off earlier this year with the new Emirates Airline Dubai Rugby Sevens Launch Party taking place on Friday 17 October at Meydan Beach, JBR, just after the tickets go on sale on 15 October.
Rugby fans are invited to get into the Sevens mood early, with the party featuring Sevens highlights videos, music, and entertainment by the Aggreko cheerleaders, as well as great prizes to be won. Entrance to the party is free, and well known DJ Dave Crane will be host for the evening. Partygoers are encouraged to get into the Sevens mood by coming along in their fancy dress, with the best and most creative outfits also winning great prizes.
The party will be held two days after the Emirates Airline Dubai Rugby Sevens 2014 tickets go on sale on 15 October, and with huge crowds once again expected to attend one of the region’s favourite sporting and social occasions of the year, the tickets will be hot property. Tickets will also be on sale at the party for fans who haven’t snapped theirs up in the first two days of sale, and anyone who buys a ticket at the party can celebrate with a free drink!
The three day annual rugby extravaganza, the Emirates Airline Dubai Rugby Sevens, is now in its 45th year, and is one of the biggest and most colourful events on the Dubai calendar. The event attracts the world’s best players and in excess of 100,000 people are expected to attend this year’s event, which will be particularly competitive as the top four finishers in the men’s and women’s competitions will secure a place in the 2016 Olympic Games.
In addition over 228 teams will take part in the Invitation Tournament which is divided into 15 categories, and will attract many top international men and women, as well as under 18s, local Emirati, social and veterans teams.
The entertainment in the Rugby Village will also again be a highlight of the event, with plenty of activities and fun for all ages.
