World Cup fever catches up with Dubai 7s

posted on 09/11/2003: 1808 views



World Cup fever has struck the Emirates Airline Dubai Rugby 7s as over half the stadium for the December 3-5 event has now sold out. The ongoing showpiece in Australia and the huge increase in profile now enjoyed by the sport throughout the region have prompted a massive demand for tickets, and the 20,000-seat stadium is expected to be filled to capacity for the three-day sporting and social bonanza.



Thousands of overseas visitors are set to flood into Dubai and while the general spectator seating tickets are selling well, organisers have this week increased the corporate hospitality area after the initial allocation sold out in days. The 7s ticketline (800-4814) has been inundated with calls while the official web site http://www.dubairugby7s.com has received hundreds of hits on its ticket link.



While tickets have been selling fast at MMI Outlets, Long's Bar, Boston Bar, the Exiles Club and the Dubai Airline Centre on Sheikh Zayed Road, they have also gone on sale this week at the Sharjah Wanderers Club. Season tickets are priced at Dh150 covering all three days of action and the Rugby Rock concert while Friday tickets are Dh120. Thursday tickets are priced at Dh80. Children Under 12 get free entry all weekend. Corporate Hospitality packages are available through 04-3210008. (The Gulf News)
