In a thrilling prelude to the Emirates Dubai 7s, captains of the world's top rugby 7s teams took the game to new heights to mark the start of the newly revamped HSBC SVNS Series in Dubai this week.
Perched on the iconic 'One Za'abeel', the world's longest cantilevered building, the captains were harnessed and positioned along the length of the record breaking cantilever and filmed to capture the teams representing their countries from this new Dubai perspective.
Showcasing the city’s stunning skyline, the launch of the HSBC SNVNS series, and the 2023 edition of the Emirates Dubai 7s, this first-of-its-kind stunt sets the stage for an unforgettable weekend of rugby action and off-field activities at the much-anticipated festival.

With Monday declared a public holiday, festival organisers have extended the Sunday night festivities from 6:30 pm until 11:45 pm.
Spectators can look forward to live music and DJ sets until the extended closing time, while the Rugby Rocks after party will keep the fun going until late, with even more crowd favourite singalongs and guitar band tributes.
