Fantastic to have HSBC Sevens back in Cape Town<p>​</p><p>I was excited to see World Rugby’s announcement yesterday that the HSBC Sevens tournament will return to Cape Town after a two-year hiatus. The tournament will be played on the weekend of 9 to11 December and will see Cape Town’s own DHL Stadium playing host to the world’s best male and female sevens rugby players.</p><p>It is fantastic to see renowned international events such as this return to the Mother City. Not only is the economic boost that results from events like this crucial for our post-Covid economic recovery, but this also reinforces Cape Town’s status as an international events destination. </p><p>We repeat our call on national government to drop all remaining capacity limits and allow full stadiums for large sporting events like this. </p><p>Cape Town is ready to welcome all players and fans to our shores for a sports-, fun-, and entertainment-filled summer.</p><p><br><strong>End</strong><br></p>2022-05-31T22:00:00ZGP0|#1d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70;L0|#01d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70|City news;GTSet|#62efe227-07aa-45e7-944c-ceebacca891d;GP0|#904f8ac3-ad18-4896-a9a8-86feb1d4a1b7;L0|#0904f8ac3-ad18-4896-a9a8-86feb1d4a1b7|StatementsGP0|#6398d426-f799-44e8-abec-30af038afd7f;L0|#06398d426-f799-44e8-abec-30af038afd7f|Rugby;GTSet|#2e3de6c1-9951-4747-8f53-470629a399bb;GP0|#13839e11-6321-4a6b-9359-1e8cc94a575e;L0|#013839e11-6321-4a6b-9359-1e8cc94a575e|tournaments;GP0|#6516fa5e-93e3-4953-9f54-0f246e1d7556;L0|#06516fa5e-93e3-4953-9f54-0f246e1d7556|City of Cape Town10
