The mecca of World Rugby Sevens tournaments, the Hong Kong 7s is returning.
World Rugby has confirmed the tournament which is traditionally held in April will now kick-off in November next year to mark the beginning of the 2023 Series.
It was originally planned to take place on the first week of April but has been re-scheduled to the 4th-6th of November.
The much anticipated event was canned for two years given the growing uncertainties over the COVID-19 pandemic.
The tournament was last played in April 2019 with Fiji winning its fifth consecutive Hong Kong 7s title, beating France in the final 21-7.
Hong Kong will host a second event in the 2023 Series six months later in its traditional April window, doubling the enjoyment of this popular event for fans.
World Rugby is considering potential options for a replacement event in the 2022 Series and further information will be shared in due course.
