Get dressed up for the Rugby Sevens

The most fun sporting event in the calendar calls for extra sartorial effort

Get dressed up for the Rugby Sevens

Not a rugby fan? Well, this annual festival of sporting fun might just be the thing to convert you.

Every year the streamlined version of the popular game comes to Dubai and brings a brilliant party vibe with it.

There is almost as much entertainment to be found in the stands as there is on the pitch, as fans from all over the world get decked out in the craziest, most colourful costumes possible while cheering on their heroes.

From a team of Teletubbies to a fearsome mariachi band, you just don’t know what quirky sight you’ll see next. This is how sport should be enjoyed.

While the fans bring a generous helping of fun to proceedings, the ultra-competitive athletes will be sure to steal the show on the pitch.

Whether you’re backing the All Blacks, roaring on the English or supporting the South Africans, the Dubai Rugby Sevens, usually held at the end of November to early December every year, has to be tackled head-on.
The Sevens Stadium, Al Ain Road, Dubai, (04 321 0008).
