A CLASH with the Rugby Football Union has been averted by the Urban Council with the clarification of hiring prices for Sevens temporary boxes at the new Hongkong Stadium. After the stadium's first Board of Governors meeting on Friday, the union were under the impression that the council would impose a daily charge of $15,000 for each of the expected 100 temporary boxes. This was double what the union expected and prompted an angry reaction from their chief executive officer, David Roberts. However, director of Urban Services, Haider Barma, said yesterday that there would be no daily charge. The union would only be charged $15,000 for each box or a percentage of the cost of a box for the entire weekend of next March 26 and 27. This accords with a confidential proposal drawn up for the union by stadium managers Wembley International, which outlines their policies towards the Sevens. Barma said: ''It was an unfortunate misunderstanding. We have spoken to the rugby people about it and they are satisfied.'' The Wembley proposal was not discussed at the Board of Governors meeting, but Barma said the items outlined were likely to be imposed, subject to discussions with the Hongkong RFU. Roberts said: ''We accept there was a misunderstanding and an error. There are still further discussions necessary but we are relieved that what was proposed earlier is still viable.'' Barma said the Urban Council would continue to have talks with the Hongkong Football Association on venues for league matches. With charges fixed at $150,000 a day or 20 per cent of the ticket sales, whichever is higher, the association have to be selective over matches to be staged there after the stadium's opening on March 11. Mongkok Stadium is to close next March for a new roof to be built. Barma said: ''The timing of the closure was requested by the architect. We discussed it with all parties.''
