New retro kit for Hong Kong's rugby sevens teams


12 Mar 2014
Hong Kong, China:  The Hong Kong Rugby Football Union today unveiled its new official team kit for the Men’s and Women’s National Sevens Teams. The kit will be debuted in tournament action at the Cathay Pacific/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens 2014 and the Cathay Pacific/HSBC Hong Kong Women’s Sevens 2014 on March 28-30.

Imbued with a retro feel that will be instantly familiar to Hong Kong rugby fans, the design features a return to the classic hooped rugby jersey style and a colour scheme that harks back to a much-loved previous incarnation of the national team jersey.

The kit was unveiled today at the iconic Bruce Lee Statue on the Avenue of Stars in East Tsim Tsa Tsui, Kowloon, with the support of senior men’s and women’s sevens team captains Jamie Hood and Royce Chan and players Yiu Kam Shing and Natasha Olson-Thorne. Also sporting the new kit was Wai Bei, the official mascot of the Hong Kong Rugby Football Union.

The new national sevens kit is provided by Kukri, the official merchandise partner of the Cathay Pacific/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens 2014.

The kit continues the groundbreaking decision by the HKRFU and team sponsor HSBC to use the Traditional Chinese logo of sponsor HSBC (??), below the bank’s distinctive hexagon symbol, on the jersey. The use of Chinese on the national team jersey was a milestone for both HSBC and the HKRFU when first announced in 2011.
