Thank you for visiting the HSBC Rugby Festival Dubai website.

On behalf of HSBC, the Dubai Exiles RFC, the Dubai Hurricanes RFC and all the Tournament Sponsors we look forward to hosting the 2018 Tournament and welcoming all visiting clubs, teams, players, volunteers, team officials, parents, guardians and spectators to The Sevens Stadium in Dubai on January 26th and 27th, 2018. 

The 2017 Tournament saw over 230 Teams and close to 3,000 players participate in nearly 700 games across the two days as they competed for 110 Trophies.  A sensational effort and some great rugby on display which we hope to replicate at the 2018 event.

Further information on the Tournament will be updated on this website as it becomes available. Please check back on a regular basis.

But if you want to enter a team or sign up to help, then you should be on this page!



The Tournament Directors:

Ronan Nash - Dubai Exiles
Peter Clapp - Dubai Hurricanes
