In case you hadn’t noticed, the Hong Kong Sevens is about to descend on the city once again with things already ramping up. The women’s Hong Kong Sevens takes place from April 4-5 – Thursday’s matches begin at So Kon Po, before the action moves over to Hong Kong Stadium on Friday. The men’s qualifiers and main World Series are played from Friday to Sunday, April 5-7 , at Hong Kong Stadium. Here’s all the information you need to enjoy the big tournament: Odds The US ( $2.25 ) are unsurprisingly the favourites for the tournament – Mike Friday’s Eagles are top of the standings having won in Las Vegas and reached three other finals. Can they lift their first Hong Kong title? New Zealand ( $2.75 ) haven’t won here since 2011 but are in good form with two tournament wins this season. But you would be a fool to write off perennial Hong Kong winners Fiji ( $3 ). They had to settle for bronze in Vancouver last time out, but were winners in Cape Town. And no matter their form, they always turn it on here. South Africa ( $26 ) are the form team with victory in Canada, while England ( $51 ) and Australia ( $251 ) as outside bets. Tickets If you missed your chance in the public ticket ballot then fear not – Viagogo is the official ticket marketplace for those looking to buy or sell. How to watch If you don’t have a ticket to the stadium then you can get yourself down to Sevens Central on Central Harbourfront, or the Sevens Festival at Lee Gardens, to watch the action on the big screens. The bars and restaurants of Wan Chai will have it on television but you can also follow along on Cable TV on channel 602 .
