HSBC Rugby Village, Hong Kong
Tappit teamed up with HSBC for the annual Cathay Pacific Hong Kong Sevens.
Firmly established as the world’s premier event of its kind and one of the most popular annual sporting events in Asia, the Hong Kong Sevens attracts some of the world’s greatest rugby players and thousands of fans from every corner of the globe to the magnificent Hong Kong Stadium every year.
With fast and furious rugby action combined with a carnival atmosphere and world rugby’s largest prize purse, the 2018 Cathay Pacific/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens was a truly unforgettable three days for everyone there.
From kicking off with 12 teams in front of 3,000 people at the Hong Kong Football Club in 1976, to today’s three-day extravaganza of international rugby revelry with 40 teams playing in front of 120,000 spectators, the Cathay Pacific/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens truly is ‘Where the World Comes to Play.’

“The Tappit team did a great job, successfully implementing the system only 8 days before the start of the Last Stand Football Fan Park. Going cashless with Tappit increased my sales, minimised the hassle of reconciliation and helped us make the most of our inventory allowing our team to focus our energies on delivering the best quality event possible. I would recommend working with Tappit.”
