Following the conclusion of the 2024 Hong Kong Sevens tournament, we were delighted to have supported the world-class rugby action that unfolded in Hong Kong.

Kukri Sports served as a vital partner of the tournament for the 19th consecutive year, contributing to the energy and excitement in the last ever tournament at the iconic Hong Kong Stadium.

We were proud to be the kit supplier for both Hong Kong China men and Hong Kong China women’s teams, as well as providing an official Hong Kong Sevens merchandise range that featured a wide range of products including replica shirts, t-shirts, hoodies, jackets and accessories.

The 2024 Hong Kong Sevens, which marked 30 years at Hong Kong Stadium, took place from 5-7 April, living up to its reputation by delivering three days of action-packed matches, electrifying atmosphere and a vibrant celebration as the HK7s returned to its very best.

Hong Kong China men’s team made history by being crowned champions of the inaugural Melrose Claymores competition, whilst Hong Kong China women’s team also displayed their talent, narrowly missing out on glory after reaching the final.

Reflecting on a memorable Hong Kong Sevens, Bryn Phillips, a member of the Hong Kong China men’s team said, “Winning the Melrose claymores tournament was a proud moment for us as a team. With our ambition to be number one team in Asia, and to showcase and perform like that in front of a sell out home crowd was a special feeling. To celebrate and share the moment of victory with fans post-game was unforgettable.”

“I was a huge fan of this year’s retro throwback Kukri kit. The striped style and design drew inspiration from some of the earlier years and brought up iconic memories of the likes of Rowan Varty and Tom McQueen wearing it. 

“The collars and buttons are from shirts of old, but the lightness and fit meant they felt like a performance shirt. It was amazing to see so many of this year’s replica jerseys in the stands and they look great in both the red and blue versions.”

Chong Ka-yan, a member of the Hong Kong China Women’s team, added, “I’m happy to have played in the final. It was great to play with this team and in such a fabulous environment.

“We played as a team. Every moment we played well, like making tackles, going forward, scoring tries, we celebrated every little thing and supported each other, and it served us well throughout the HK7s. 

“Kukri’s designs were a great variety kits for us, tailor-made for our specific needs on the pitch. Also the range of products in our training kits and leisure wear were comfy and high quality, which helped us perform to our potential.”

The Hong Kong Sevens is a true testament to the spirit of rugby, and we couldn’t be more thrilled with the incredible showcase of talent and excitement witnessed during this year’s fantastic tournament,” said Clare Millington, Asia General Manager at Kukri Sports.

“It’s been a privilege to not only supply the official HK7s merchandise, but also support both the Hong Kong China teams with their kits as they competed with passion and determination.”

As the 2024 Hong Kong Sevens concluded, Kukri extends its congratulations to all the teams that participated and celebrates the success of this year’s tournament.
